Sip with your Senses – a Wine & Garden Event
See. Swirl. Smell. Sip and explore the floral and herbal notes in our wines. The Westside Wine Trail is having a wine and garden party event on May 12th from noon – 5pm.
Visitors will be able to enjoy complimentary tastings of the featured wine at each winery and in celebration of our garden party theme, the wineries will be giving away seeds to help you get a head start on your summer gardens. There will be a different seed at each winery, ranging from floral and herb to vegetable seeds. So bring out your garden dresses and floral shirts and spend a leisurely afternoon along our wine trail.
Linger in the picnic areas or patios where wine by the glass is available to purchase or discover the flavours of the Okanagan at one of our winery restaurants. Please note that tasting fees apply for full tastings. Featured wine and seeds are complimentary.
Time: noon – 5 pm | Cost: Complimentary
ROLLINGDALE FEATURES: RIESLING & SUNFLOWER SEEDS
Our off-dry Riesling is a vibrant burst of fruit that is sure to brighten up a day, as are the sunflowers that we plant generously around the farm. Everyone loves sunflowers, the birds and bees included. We like to attract pollinating bees and make sure that the birds have things to eat around here other than grapes! We started planting them in our gardens, then at the ends of the rows of vines, and along the driveway. We have found them to thrive on surprisingly little water. Go ahead and plant them anywhere you can, the sooner the better. Enjoy their rapid growth and beautiful heads that will spring up from our estate grown sunflower seeds.
