Oliver Osoyoos Winery Association partners with Sun Peaks Resort for a weekend of wine, food and ski

Sun Peaks Resort, BC: Oliver Osoyoos Winery Country and Sun Peaks Resort have partnered for a weekend of food, wine and winter adventure with Savour the Sun, December 7-9, 2018. The three-day event will bring some of the region’s most celebrated winemakers to the BC interior destination.

Anchored to three signature evening events, snow lovers can spend the day on the slopes before savouring rare finds and terroir expressive wines, paired with delicious food by Sun Peaks Resort’s culinary team.

The festival weekend kick-starts with Savour the Sun at Sunburst on Friday, December 7, a ski-in ski-out, mid-mountain reception that will focus on private collection, hard-to-find wines presented and poured by the winemaker. This intimate event will allow guests time to engage with each winery, learning the nuances of their winemaking philosophies and discovering the passion behind their rare and unique wine portfolio. Wine tastings will be paired with delicious food stations, all in the spectacular setting of the mid-mountain Sunburst Bar + Eatery after the slopes have closed to the general public.

For those looking for a more informal evening, Savour Bubbles is a progressive-style tasting at Masa’s Bar & Grill, focusing on sparkling wines and terroir expressive varietals from nine Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country winemakers. The last event, Uncork Your Senses, at The Annex rounds out the weekend with an elegant evening of food and wine, featuring twelve of the region’s most respected wineries.

At all three events, the delicious portfolio of Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country will be expertly paired with food from Sun Peaks Resort’s culinary team, featuring local Okanagan and BC ingredients. Highlights include Misoyaki wild BC salmon with artisan greens and wasabi-yuzu dressing (Uncork Your Senses), Okanagan winter vegetable pakoras (Savour Bubbles), Brohm Lake duck confit with lentil and root vegetable cassolette, and steamed Quadra Island halibut cheeks with soy vinaigrette (Savour the Sun at Sunburst).
