Summerland to host fourth annual Grand Sommelier Express

Wine event will be held on Kettle Valley Steam Railway’s historic train

The Grand Sommelier Express will return to Summerland’s Kettle Valley Railway station on June 22 with two events.

This year, the wine event will have two time slots, at 1 and 5 p.m., each offering a different experience.

The event features a ride on the steam train with on-board wine tasting.

The afternoon train has a quick picture stop at the trestle while the evening train begins with a sparking wine reception and includes a trestle stop to enjoy a special cider and beer tasting along with food and live music.
