The three-hour tasting—normally $79 per head—includes entertainment from local jazz/reggae band Chipko Jones, a souvenir glass and access to the on-site artisan vendors—not to mention fresh, high-altitude air.

Roughly 30 wineries, breweries and other sponsors will be meeting event-goers on the mountain. Alchemist Distiller, Intrigue Wines, Lake Breeze Vineyards and Recline Ridge Vineyards are among the BC Wine Festival members pouring at this year’s event, which runs in support of the BC Hospitality Foundation.
