BC’s Similkameen Valley is a place of sharp contrasts. Steep mountains encircle the flat valley bottom; temperatures fluctuate dramatically between desert-like extremes; soils are a complex amalgam of disparate elements. The Valley’s trademark wind blows over the land, and the Similkameen River winds endlessly through the vineyards and orchards. All these intense forces combine to create unique flavours in the glass, and the region is rapidly gaining recognition for its world-class wines. Join the panelists for a virtual tour of 3 of the Similkameen’s top wineries: Clos du Soleil, Corcelettes Estate Winery, and Orofino. Guests will sample the Valley’s complex wines paired with complementary bites.
