The wine route becomes festive | Economic news


Head to the Westside Wine Trail in December for festive tastings, holiday shopping, and a chance to win a prize.

The Sip into the Season Passport Event, which runs through December 15, invites guests to collect passports and visit 13 participating Westside wineries including Beaumont, Ciao Bella, Frind, Grizzli, Indigenous World, Kalala , Little Straw, Mission Hill, Mount Boucherie, Off the Grid, Quails’ Gate, Rollingdale and Volcanic Hills.

Seasonal passports are available at Cove Lakeside Resort, TownePlace Suites by Marriott West Kelowna, Westbank Visitor’s Center, Tourism Kelowna Visitor Center, and participating tasting rooms.

A few of the wineries have brought in artisans, mostly on weekends, while others have put together vacation packages for guests looking for holiday shopping.

Mission Hill Winery has set up its Season of Trees exhibit and will host an evergreen market on the Loggia on December 5, 12 and 19. Quails’ Gate has lit up their vines and has a festive market on Fridays and Saturdays from December 3 to 18.

Once participants have their passports validated by at least six participating wineries, they can complete the entry form and drop it off at any participating Westside Wine Trail wineries by 5:00 p.m. on December 16. The draw takes place on December 21.

People can get additional entries by sharing photos of their tasting room tours on social media and tagging the winery they are at and @WestsideWineTrail.

The prize includes six bottles of wine from members of the Westside Wine Trail.

For those looking to treat themselves to a full vacation rather than taking a day or two to tour the wineries, the Cove Lakeside Resort, the newly opened TownePlace Suites by Marriott, and a View to Remember B&B have stay offers.

The Westside Wine Trail is working with the Cask and Barrel Liquor Store for the second year on the 12 Sips of Christmas, a case of 12 full-size bottles of wine prepared by local wineries to include local favorites and hard-to-find winery exclusives . Each case includes six reds, four whites, a sparkling wine and a dessert wine.

The cases sold out quickly last year.

There are only about fifty cases available and about half have already been sold.
