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.
