Naramata Bench - A Weekend in Wine Country
By: Paulina Toren, Cupcakes and Life
I am sure you guys all saw on my IG stories a couple of weeks ago I spent the weekend wine touring in Naramata. Naramata is a quick one hour drive from Kelowna and around a 4 hour drive from Vancouver, which makes it a perfect weekend getaway.
The Tailgate Party is the Naramata Bench Wineries Association event of the season. Join us for a fabulous Naramata wineries style evening of wine, food, live music, celebration, and fun in the heart of Naramata on the grounds of the beautiful and historic Naramata Heritage Inn.
This year's theme is Roaring 20's, the era when Naramata and the Naramata Heritage inn were in their early days! You needed a password to get into speakeasies in the 20's, but you just need your ticket to get into this celebration of Naramata wines and culinary treats. Dress in theme if you want as there will be prizes for the best costumes.
