Summer is here and one of the best things about the season is eating alfresco, especially a picturesque picnic with friends and family. Enjoy a rare opportunity to picnic in the vineyards of the Okanagan at OAK Estate for Summerland’s Veuve Clicquot in the Vines event.
With the return of outdoor gatherings, OAK Estate in Summerland is pleased to partner with prestige champagne house Veuve Clicquot to offer a truly memorable experience. Taking place on July 10th, the picnic includes a basket for two featuring ethically raised and sustainably cured meats, local artisan cheeses, estate fruit preserves, fresh baguette, sparkling water, and a seasonal sampling of strawberries with chocolate fondue. A bottle of Veuve Clicquot complements the locally curated menu. Throughout the vineyards, socially-spaced and personal picnic spots complete with blanket, large umbrella and DJ vibes round out the experience. Guests are encouraged to sport ‘picnic chic’ attire and post their look at the Instagram wall. This is the first time Veuve Clicquot is bringing one of its signature experiences to the grounds of another winery. The esteemed champagne house selected OAK Estate Winery in the Okanagan for its stunning location and relationship with president Alysha Harker. Guests will have exclusive access to the grounds of OAK Estate during this special event, which will include lawn games (jenga and petanque), and summer tunes by DJ Joe Pound, a perennial favourite in Whistler and at the Roxy in Vancouver.
Tickets to the Veuve Clicquot in the Vines event are $299 per couple. Only 25 spots for two are available for each of the three reserved time slots: 11:00 am – 1:00 pm; 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm; and 4:00 – 7:00 pm. Capacity is in keeping with current PHO regulations restricting gatherings to no more than 50 people. If regulations change, there is the potential that additional tickets will be released.
