What is a garagiste? (gar-ah-jeest). It started out in France (of course) where it was a derogatory phrase for those avante garde and crazy mavericks making wine in their garage and outside the highly regulated system.
Gradually and grudgingly came the acknowledgement that something really interesting was happening with these small case lot artisan wines, and a movement was born.
Garagiste North bring together the small guys. Wines produced from 100% Canadian grapes and under 2000 cases total production annually.
Come on out and get acquainted with these up and coming wine stars! Have some great conversations and spend some time with these passionate winemakers.
You’ll even be able to purchase your favorites from their pop up store!
A portion of all proceeds from the tickets goes to the Garagiste North Wine Scholarship for Wine Studies at the Okanagan College.
$99 per person Penticton, $89 per person from Summerland, $79 per person from Peachland – plus tax (GST). The cost includes shuttle as well as a ticket to the event. Gratuity Welcomed.
Our goal is to offer the most fun with the best service in the Okanagan while assuring everyone has a safe and entertaining experience.
