Blending Bootcamp

Tuesday, March 13th | 6:30 pm | $40


While we all enjoy our single-varietal wines, from Pinot Noirs to Chardonnays, there’s a reason why some of the best wines in the world, whether Bordeaux or Super-Tuscans, are made from blending different grapes together. After a virtual tour and tasting through the many sub-regions and grape varieties of the Okanagan Valley, use your new-found knowledge to create your perfect BC blend!
