Okanagan Wine and Art: Homecoming Edition

The love for fine wine and art often goes hand-in-hand. Through the blend of Okanagan wine and local art collections, discover the diversity, creativity and innovation of the Okanagan region of British Columbia. Four Okanagan wineries will lead wine tastings and discuss their passion for the arts including winery art collections, and how art is integrated into their brands.

Presented in partnership with the UBC Wine Research Centre and Faculty of Management at UBC Okanagan.
