Father's Day Among the Vines

June 14, 2014 at 8:00 PM

This weekend, we set aside time to celebrate our Fathers and father-figures in our lives.  We look for ways to communicate how special they are and honor the impact they've had on us.  Practically speaking, this can take on many forms such as a new tie (to add to a growing collection), a homemade card/craft or other sentimental object, or perhaps a day spent together enjoying a special experience or fun activity.  Deep in the heart of the Okanagan's wine country, Dads can be treated to wine tastings, wine tours, and of course, delicious, meals at some of the region's best restaurants.  

This Father's Day, treat your Dad to an extra special day or evening at a local winery of your choice or take in one of the events especially designed for fathers this weekend.  Here are some events to choose from--be sure to make reservations for your last-minute plans! Cheers to all the hard-working fathers and father-figures out there-we raise a glass to you!

Ancient Hills Estate Winery

Ancient Hills is a beautiful boutique winery located across from the Kelowna airport.  Established 60 years ago, this European-style winery is known for its small lots of delicious wines.

This year, Ancient Hills is hosting a Show and Tell event for Father's Day.  Dads are invited to bring an item that has a story associated with it, and to share their tale with those in attendance.  Best story will win a free bottle of Ancient Hills Wine! Personal Historian and member of the Association of Personal Historians, Rebecca Robinson, will be on hand to judge and tell stories of her own.  

As a way to bring awareness to the joys of sharing our unique histories, this event is sure to bring about laughter, stir up memories and perhaps make some eyes water.  Share, listen, and enjoy a fun afternoon of story-telling and delicious wine! 

Time: 3-4:30pm

Cost: $5 for wine, or $3 for tastings
