Barbeque-een in the Similkameen

Ok, you’ll know from my podcast last year how much I love going to this event. I go to a lot of them and I had so much fun at this particular one held at the Grist Mill near Keremeos – a historical property and camp ground that is an experience on its own. And the Similkameen Wineries Association has come of up with some amazing ways of promoting one of the most unique wine growing regions in BC.

Speaking of creativity. While the Spring and Summer Winer Festivals have their more traditional in-door events (tastings, panels, dinners, and gatherings), the Summer Festival is really starting to get wineries and their associations to think outside the wine case a little more. For me, this makes it one of the more exciting of the wine festivals and something to start planning your vacations around. I hope you’re able to check out some of these events soon.
