Naramata winemakers are packing their bags and their spring wine releases and heading to Victoria for an exclusive tasting event.

The winemakers and their wines present Art ’n’ Facts of Wine, a fundraiser for the Royal B.C. Museum and the Royal B.C. Museum Foundation.

The event is a chance to sample the spring wine releases from 19 Naramata Bench wineries, meet the winemakers and learn about the art of wine from the region, the unique and highly-regarded winery country overlooking Okanagan Lake.

Participating wineries include Bench 1775 Winery, Black Widow Winery, Deep Roots Winery, Elephant Island Orchard Wines, Hillside Winery, Howling Bluff Estate Winery, Kettle Valley Winery, La Frenz Winery, Lake Breeze Vineyards, Lang Vineyards, Misconduct Wine Co., Monster Vineyards, Moraine Estate Winery, Poplar Grove Winery, Red Rooster Winery, Terravista Vineyards, Therapy Vineyards, Tightrope Winery and Upper Bench Estate Winery.

Victoria chefs, charcuteries, cheese shops and bakeries will also be on hand offering food samples.

“The funds raised from this event will be invested in our learning programs and field research,” says Angela Williams, chief operating officer of the Royal B.C. Museum.

Art ’n’ Facts of Wine is this Tuesday (April 28) from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Crystal Garden. Tickets are $95 each. Tickets are available at royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/events/art-n-facts-of-wine/ or call 250-356-7226.
