Summer wine country is all about long-table wine dinners and parties, right? Here are three upcoming delicious events that still have tickets available - but do hurry.

Bubbles paired with every course? Yes, please.

Bella Wines is a destination boutique sparkling wine house in Naramata.

On their little farm, Jay Drysdale and Wendy Rose are making their buzzed-about bubbly and enjoying the good life. Jay is also a chef and the couple is all about good food so this upcoming Winemaker's Dinner with the Okanagan’s famed caterers, Joy Road, will be spectacular.

Joy Road owners Cam Smith and Dana Ewart are renowned for their locally focussed “cuisine du terroir”. Jay and Team JRC will guide you through a five-course meal comprised of local ingredients with each course paired with a Bella sparkling wine. Cheers!

Okanagan Feast of Fields is a moveable feast.

Organized by Farm Folk City Folk, each year the Okanagan’s best chefs, farmers, artisans and wine and drink makers gather together on a beautiful farm to eat, drink and celebrate all of the bounty B.C. has to offer.

This year marks the 11th annual Okanagan Feast of Fields on Sunday, Aug. 11 and the event returns to gorgeous Caldwell Heritage Farm/Wiseacre Distillery in South Kelowna.

Owners Kristi and James Caldwell have created an idyllic family farm to raise their family.

Guests will be strolling around feasting on the many food and drink pairings at each table. The bites are always delicious, creative and memorable and focus on using local ingredients.

This event organized by Farm Folk City Folk is a celebration of the community of people that grow, create and prepare the delicious food forged from our bountiful land and sea in B.C.
