October 09, 2014 at 11:35 PM

As the buzz of harvest and crush time in the vineyards has hit the Okanagan Valley, the time for celebration has come! The year's largest celebration of the Valley's wines is the Okanagan Fall Wine Festival, the most popular and well-attended selection of events throughout the year. This week marks the 34th annual fall festival, with events taking place up until October 13th. 

Due to the popularity of some of the events, tickets sell out fast, but there are still plenty of local wineries and special events to attend in the coming days. In case you have yet to attend any of the festivities and need an extra push to do so, here is a list of top 5 reasons why you should attend this year's Okanagan Fall Wine Fest.  

1. Attending the Okanagan Fall Wine Festival draws people together. Whether you’re a first-time attendee or a return veteran, the fall wine festival is all about bringing like-minded people together. Wine enthusiasts, winemakers, foodies, and more are all brought together to connect over the wonderful nectar produced in the Okanagan. It’s a great venue to meet new people, reconnect with old friends, or even make a mini-vacation out of it with other enthusiasts.


2. Choosing to attend the events or visit the wineries allows you to connect with the winemakers in person. Though it's great to read stories on websites and see pictures of the wineries, it's a privilege to be able to connect with the people responsible for making award-winning wines and experience the beauty of the Okanagan Valley firsthand. Having your wine poured by the winemakers, vineyard owners, and staff who are dedicated to their passionate craft, is an experience you want to have face-to-face. Furthermore, it gives you a chance to determine which wines to purchase!

3. The Okanagan Fall Wine Festival offers events that provide education for attendees. Have you ever wondered what makes the wines here unique? Did you want to learn about the terroir of the region and how it affects the wine? How about learning the stories behind the names of the wines or the land that was chosen by the vineyard owners? What about learning all about delicious food and wine pairings? Events are designed in such a way that you will be able to ask questions of the winemakers, discover the stories behind the vintages and learn what makes the Okanagan wine region unique. 

4. Wineries and special events during the festival offer attendees exclusive access to some limited edition vintages as well as new releases for this year. If you want to be the first to try the new releases from your favorite wineries, be sure to visit during the fall festival. Winemakers are on hand to answer questions, offer recommendations, and pour their favorites-what better way to enjoy a glass of wine?

5. Events during the festival are all about celebration and enjoying the literal fruits of the winemakers' labor. Ultimately, the festival was created and all the events are designed with an element of celebration and fun in mind. Combining entertainment, activities, award banquets, and tours are just a few ways in which the festival ensures that attendees enjoy their time at the events and are able to create lasting memories.
