Sold Out Events at the 13th Annual Winter Festival of WineJanuary 25, 2011: Sun Peaks, BC – The 13th Annual Winter Festival of Wine at Sun Peaks Resort has been declared a huge success after six events were sold out. In addition, four other events were almost at capacity, with only space for one or two more people.
The sold out events took place over the second half of the festival, and included the signature event of the week, the Sun Peaks WestJet Progressive Tasting. Tickets for the Progressive became a hot commodity after selling out five days before the Friday evening event. Over 660 people enjoyed wine varietals from 24 Okanagan wineries that were set up in hotel lobbies throughout the alpine village.
The Medal Winners Tasting, Delta Winemasters’ Dinner, All You Need is Cheese & Wine, Wine Mixology & Small Bites, and Mixology to Music were also sold out this year.
New events added to the festival helped draw additional ticket sales for the event, with over 350 more event tickets sold this year over the 2010 festival. The Port & Cheese: After the Après Social was new this year and was almost a sell out event.
Mark your calendar! The next culinary extravaganza at Sun Peaks takes place July 15-17, 2011 during the 4th Annual Wine and Culture Festival. Sample wine from BC’s boutique wineries, taste seasonal treats from local chefs, enjoy melodic sounds from members of the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra and more!
