Paired Dinner: Kitsch Wines and Chef Bruce Worden
Join team Kitsch’s new winemaker Graham Pierce for a 5-course paired dinner impeccably prepared by Chef Bruce Worden. Guests will be welcomed with a glass of Kitsch 2017 Blanc de Blancs on arrival and each course will be thoughtfully paired with one of Kitsch’s small-batch, terroir-driven, East Kelowna wines.
The newly renovated Grand Foyer of the Whistler Conference Centre provides a gorgeous, safe and welcoming space for the limited number guests. Secure your ticket early given the smaller nature of this event.

The Kitsch family’s Okanagan roots stretch back to 1910, when Kelowna was still a small, lakefront pioneer settlement. Four generations later, this entrepreneurial family takes great pride in helping to shape the past and the future of the Okanagan Valley.
Founders Ria and Trent Kitsch have blended their passion for wine and creative entrepreneurship to produce premium, sustainably-grown wines that pair equally well with special occasions and Tuesday night Cards Against Humanity games. With a little help from some friends, the young family transformed overgrown fields into lush vineyards, set on historic apple orchards that originally served as the Kelowna Land and Orchards (KLO) headquarters.
The single-vineyard wines embody the region’s rich soil and sun-soaked valleys. Cultivated through generations of ambition and love, the Kitsch family has captured the Okanagan in a glass.
