Summer might be over, but the fun continues at Black Hills Estate Winery. With their Fall Harvest Party, release of their long-anticipated Nota Bene wine and a new autumn menu at their Vineyard Kitchen, you won’t be missing the heat at Black Hills.

Party of the Season

Instead of mourning the end of summer, celebrate it September 29, 2018 at the Black Hills Fall Harvest Party. The family-style dinner, paired with top-class wine and locally sourced food, and prepared by Black Hills’ talented Vineyard Kitchen culinary team, is set to be the party of the season.

“Not only is the party a fantastic way to celebrate the 2018 vintage, it’s a great excuse to get dressed up and wear something you might not usually get the opportunity to wear, and have a great time,” says Rachel Dick, marketing manager for Black Hills Estate Winery.

Dressed in attire ranging from funky to classic, guests are treated to wine and appetizers before sitting down for a family-style feast, accompanied, of course, by an abundance of Black Hills wine.

Black Hills has even arranged shuttle service to and from the event from three resorts in Osoyoos, including Spirit Ridge, Walnut Beach Resort and Watermark Beach Resort. That way, you can indulge in all the wine you desire.

Nota Bene is Here!

Located on the Black Sage Bench, roughly 13 kilometres north of Osoyoos and 10 kilometres south of Oliver, Black Hills is perfectly positioned to produce some of the country’s finest wines. The most highly awaited is their Bordeaux blend, Nota Bene.

This year, the winery is releasing their 2016 vintage, which will be available in their Wine Experience Centre, as well as other local wine shops and restaurants, September 1.

“Our Nota Bene is our flagship wine, it’s what we’re known for,” says Dick. “There were record temperatures in 2016, which resulted in well balanced fruit with outstanding intensity. It really is a gorgeous wine.”

Culinary Delights

In addition to creating outstanding wine, Black Hills has enhanced the Estate’s culinary experience with their new Vineyard Kitchen.

Focussing on locally sourced ingredients fresh produce, the Kitchen changes their menu each month. Vineyard Kitchen offers light fare, such as charcuterie boards, salads, and flatbreads. Each item is perfectly customized to pair with one of their exceptional wines.

With a new menu rolling out in September, guests can expect to taste the best of the region. Each item is so delicious, it will prove to be difficult deciding what to order.

In the fall, the restaurant is open four days a week (Thursday through Sunday).
