With this Summer heat one of the last places anyone wants to be is a hot kitchen, but how nice does outdoor dining sound, especially picnic, especially a picturesque picnic with friends and family. This weekend, enjoy a rare opportunity to picnic in the Okanagan vineyards of OAK Estate for Summerland’s Veuve Clicquot in the Vines event.
As the BC Restart progresses, OAK Estate in Summerland is partnering with prestige champagne house Veuve Clicquot to offer a truly memorable summer experience. This Saturday, July 10th, book your blanket for a perfect picnic including 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. To top it all off, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot complements the al fresco experience. Additional bottles can be prebooked when purchasing tickets, and other beverages can be ordered at the venue.
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 don their ‘picnic chic’ attire and get that perfect pic for the ‘gram!
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, including lawn games (jenga and petanque), and summer tunes by DJ Joe Pound, a perennial favourite in Whistler and at the Roxy in Vancouver.
