Fall Okanagan Wine Festival

oook contributor Ryan Donn gives you the low down on the Fall Okanagan Wine Festival

Vine, dine, and wine! The Fall Okanagan Wine Festival is only a few days away.
Ten days of festivities that include over 160 events spread throughout the
Valley. “Something for every pallet” as Blair Baldwin said during our
interview at the Wild Apple last week. It was a fascinating interview by one
of the Okanagan’s wine ambassadors. I hope you enjoy the interview as much
as I did. Discover some interesting facts and highlights about the only wine
festival that is held during the harvest.

Your going to love the original name of the festival. Its a doozy!
