The party is just getting started at Oliver Twist!
Owner and winemaker Gina Harfman and new wine shop manager Tammie Betts are anticipating excellent turnouts on the many special days that they have planned throughout the coming year.
Oliver Twist will host a Customer Appreciation Day on Saturday, March 11th. There will be wine specials, tasty treats, and contests galore to go along with the normally beautiful spring Okanagan weather. It is rare for wineries to be hosting events on this scale so early in the year but there is a reason for that. “We have always had a lot of local support,” says Gina. “Having events outside of the busy tourist season is a great way to say thank you to our many loyal customers who live in the Okanagan.”
On Saturday, May 13th, Oliver Twist will host a cheesemaking course with Naomi Fournier, the Modern Milkmaid of Birdsong Farm in Enderby. It will be a two-hour session that will focus on making cheeses that pair with the wines of Oliver Twist. Tickets are $75 and will include a glass of wine while making your cheese. It is an amazing opportunity to learn about what makes cheese and wine go so well together! Seating is limited so contact the winery directly.
The 4th Annual “Show, Shine … and Wine?” will be on Saturday, July 8th. Expect the best shiny hot rods surrounded by live music, food, and wine. There may even be a secret brand new wine released to help celebrate the occasion!
There will be more events happening throughout the year so visit their website olivertwist.ca or follow them on social media to learn about events as soon as they are announced.
