Naramata Bench Wineries Tailgate Party

Manitou Beach & Park, Naramata
Saturday, September 8, 2012

Back by popular demand, The Naramata Bench Wineries are dropping their tailgates on Saturday, September 8th for the Okanagan Wine Party of the season.

It's the let-your-hair down, pop-some-corks and have lots of fun event. The Wine & Food Event for wine enthusiasts to plan an Okanagan Fall weekend around.

The event will take place in the heart of Naramata Village at Manitou Beach and Park starting at 5:30pm.

In addition to 21 wineries pouring their wines, there will be great food; an unforgettable half time show that will introduce guests to a whole new side of the wine industry; live music by Shane Philips; dancing; and a Salmon Showdown featuring some of the Okanagan's best chefs.

The fresh salmon will be provided by Codfathers Seafood Market and the event is supporting Ocean Wise, a Vancouver Aquarium Conservation Program. The salmon dinner will be rounded out with signature fixin's from The Bench Artisan Food Market.

And if that is not enough, there is also an after party, the Super Gate, which picks up where Tailgate leaves off, but only 100 tickets are available. Think of it as a VIP after-party with the winemakers, winery owners and guest chefs. There will be an oyster bar, exclusive and elusive wines to taste, more food and music.  

Shuttles to and from Penticton all evening are sponsored by Westland Insurance.


Main Event Tickets: 5:30pm-8:00pm $89.00

Super Gate Tickets: 5:30pm-10:00pm $155.00 (includes After Party.)
