Thursdays, 7 to 9pm Who planted the first commercial vineyard in the Okanagan Valley? Where was the first vineyard planted in Oliver? Who came up with the idea for estate wineries and changed the regulations to allow them? The B.C. wine industry has a fascinating history that goes back almost a century, making the Okanagan Valley the epicenter of B.C. wine and a world-class wine region because of the work done by many industry pioneers. This seminar will tell you their stories and the milestones that built the B.C. wine industry to where it is today.
