2nd Annual Wine in the Garden


On May 28th, I attended this wonderful evening of wines from the Summerland region along with delicious food prepared by Truffles Fine Foods.

More than 75 wines from Summerland’s Bottleneck Drive in the Okanagan poured alongside food pairings and desserts from Truffles Fine Foods.







VanDusen Botanical Gardens was the setting for the second Wine in the Garden fundraiser event which I was happy to attend. Summerland area wineries from the Bottleneck Drive Winery Association were in Vancouver to raise funds for one of Vancouver’s most treasured spaces.
