For the fifth consecutive year, Summerland’s Bottleneck Drive will hold its Grand Sommelier Express event in late spring.
The event will be held at the Kettle Valley Steam Railway on Saturday, June 20, 2020 and features a steam train ride with onboard wine tasting.
Guests will stop at the Trout Creek trestle bridge for pictures and to taste local foods paired with Summerland craft beverages, served by their makers.
After the ride, at the railway station, a gourmet reception will be catered by Brodo Kitchetn and will feature Summerland, wine, cider, beer and spirits.
Guests will mingle with local winemakers and craft beverage creators while listening to live music undercover. Each attendee receives a souvenir wine glass to commemorate the day along with discounts to be used along Bottleneck Drive.
Bottleneck Drive consists of 18 wineries, three cideries, one brewery and one distillery in Summerland.
