Dining at a winery this summer is a must! The food is all local with lots of produce and herbs coming right from the backyard gardens on the property. Plus, the views are breathtaking that really allow you to escape and enjoy the beauty of British Columbia.

The Pig Out is now in it’s sixth year and has become an annual tradition for many. Happening on Saturday, May 6th from 1-4pm at the beautiful Covert Farms. It is a fantastic way to celebrate spring with the 39 wineries in Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country. Many fantastic chefs from Oliver and Osoyoos are back to pair their culinary creations with local wines.
