Okanagan’s largest family fall wine festival will also feature 15 food trucks for hungry wine taster

Oliver, BC  – For the first time since the launch of the Oliver Festival of the Grape in 1997, there will be dedicated tents featuring wine and food pairings from Okanagan wineries that have associated restaurants or that provide a unique food offering at the winery.

“We are thrilled to offer a new wine and food tasting experience for FOG goers that will feature Okanagan wineries from Kelowna to Osoyoos,” says Luke Whittall, Chair of FOG’s wine committee.  “Each of these wineries will be pairing a selection of their best wines with bite sized food samples assembled on site by expert food vendors and chefs.”

Adds Whittall, “In the weeks leading up to the October 5th festival we’ll be sharing a few of the featured wine and Okanagan cuisine combos that FOG goers can expect to experience. This is a must attend event for wine lovers looking to experience multiple Okanagan food and wine pairings in one location.”

“Everyone who comes to our family-oriented fall wine festival (with more than 50 participating Okanagan wineries) will work up an appetite during the event,” explains says Bonnie Dancey, CEO of the South Okanagan Chamber of Commerce that organizes the Festival of the Grape. 

“That’s why we’ll have 15 food trucks (outside of the wine and food pairing tents) to provide our hungry event goers with a wide selection of food that ranges from Thai to Tacos and ice cream to doughnuts and everything in between.  We have something to satisfy almost every palate.”
