Time really does fly when you’re having fun and nobody knows that better than the team at Tinhorn Creek Vineyards. It’s hard to believe that Tinhorn Creek Vineyards has been an anchor winery in the South Okanagan for two decades. To celebrate such a momentous occasion the winery is hosting a series of 20 events at locations all over BC and Alberta.
This is the year to celebrate the promise of the future and look back fondly on what has passed. Over the years, Tinhorn Creek has made a name for themselves not only because of their great wines, but also because they have worked hard to create some enjoyable event traditions. Their annual concert series is one of them. This year, they will be bringing back some of the best bands that have played for them over their history. Concert series tickets will go on sale March 8th.
20 years in business has allowed Kenn and Sandra Oldfield and their team to nurture some really rewarding relationships both with consumers and within the industry. Two decades ago, Manuel Ferreira (formerly proprietor of famed restaurant Le Gavroche in Vancouver) stopped in at the winery to pick up a case of wine. Now, Manny is a partner with the winery in the operation of Miradoro Restaurant on the site. His establishment will be hosting a few of the celebratory events as well. In August, he will be co hosting the Starlight Supper in the amphitheatre with Winemaker Sandra Oldfield. There will also be an event at the Willow Park Liquor Store in Calgary as the two businesses share the same anniversary.
