The Italian Wines of the Okanagan: Un Lavoro d'Amore



Wed, Oct 25th, 2023


6:30 pm to 9:30 pm


The Kelowna Canadian Italian Club and the Okanagan Wine and Orchard Museum are exploring the influences of Italy on the Okanagan Wine Industry in a very special event.

Those influences stretch back a century, to the introduction of wine grapes to the Okanagan and the beginnings of a fledgling industry.

We look back to those beginnings, but then fast forward to the present, to feature Italian styled wines from throughout the valley made from time-honoured varietals. Our guest panel: John Schreiner, Luke Whittall, Simone Castellerin and Donna Senese - will sample this exciting collection of wines curated by Luke Whittall and share their thoughts with attendees. Then (after a short break) our guests are welcome to sample for themselves. There will be tasting stations set up around the Laurel and Chef Ricardo Scebba has prepared a paired tasting menu of appetizers at each station.
