Join us for an incomparable weekend celebrating the best of BC wine country, Friday September 13 to Sunday, September 15, 2013. Surrounded by the natural beauty and prime terroir of the South Okanagan Valley, you’ll enjoy a unique collection of exceptional experiences, exclusively for Visa Infinite cardholders.

Your weekend commences Friday evening at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery’s Sonora Room Restaurant with Chef Brock Bowes, featuring guest Chefs Ned Bell (YEW), Trevor Bird (Fable Kitchen), Mark Filatow (Waterfront Restaurant) and Justin Leboe (Model Milk). As the chefs collaborate under the truly sublime winery settings, all your senses for culinary adventure will be realized and rewarded.

The South Okanagan is host to 28 wineries, and Saturday will feature a tour and exclusive tastings hosted by one of the Okanagan’s foremost wine experts. Wineries to be toured include Black Hills Estate Winery and Church & State Wines. Lunch will be served on the patio at See Ya Later Ranch in the heart of the 100 acre vineyard with stunning mountain and lake views.

The feature event will be hosted Saturday evening at Nk’Mip Cellars Winery. Guest chefs will prepare a stunning feast inspired by, and paying tribute to, First Nations Cuisine. Nk’Mip is Canada’s first Aboriginal-owned and operated winery, and was recognized in 2012 as BC Winery of the Year.

Sunday lunch will conclude the weekend at SunRock Vineyard. Guests will receive a rare glimpse of this working vineyard while joining Jackson-Triggs winemaker Brooke Blaire, Director of Vineyards Troy Osborne, and Chef Chris Vanhooydonk.
