The Icewine Cometh

January 1, 2008

Tourism BC sent out the following notice that will appeal to all lovers of ice wine: To take the chill off the winter months, Sun Peaks Resort celebrates the season by blending wine, seasonal menus and plenty of outdoor play during one unforgettable week: the annual Sun Peaks Icewine Festival.  Set for sipping January 12 – 17, this picturesque alpine village pops the corks on a fleet of Icewine and late harvest wines during a mix of casual and intimate events sure to tantalize.  Indeed, this gathering of grape expectations will feature Winemasters’ Dinners at various Sun Peaks restaurants as well as the Sun Peaks Progressive Tasting, a flagship event which offers cool wines and crisp mountain air as guests wander the village during an evening of tasting and touring.  All You Need is Cheese…for Dessert will pair some of the best aged cheeses with Okanagan dessert wines, while Sinful Chocolate & Heavenly Wine poses the question of light versus dark as the perfect complement for vintage offerings.  If it’s all about the main attraction, Icewines & Nothing More promises pure liquid gold with a seminar set to sample the best the Okanagan Valley has to offer.  Coffee and wine?  It’s the perfect way to end the meal, and Taste the Aromas of Coffee & Wine with Starbucks will couple six roasts with an equal number of wines to show you how it’s done.  As a perfect finish, package it all together with a combination of sleeping, skiing and sipping with an array of Sun Peaks stays.  Just don’t forget to take in the Icewine Brunch on the week’s final morning – and savour those last few golden sips.
