Garagiste North Wine Festival

Garagiste North Wine Festival Announces 2017 Tour Dates: Vancouver/ Parksville/ Penticton

If you’ve ever felt that you don’t get to try the smaller wine producers from around BC, this is the chance for you to sample these hard to find wines. Founders of the Garagiste North Wine Festival, Jennifer Schell and Terry Meyer-Stone, started this unique gathering to celebrate the artisan winemakers that are often too small to join the big festivals. The inaugural festival in 2014 held in Okanagan Falls captured the hearts of the wine-loving crowd who were delighted to taste these exclusive wines and have the opportunity to talk directly to the winemaker. The Garagiste Guild Members together make for one heck of a wine party!

GARAGISTE – (gar-ah-jeest) noun, Fr. : The garagiste originally refers to a group of winemakers in the Bordeaux region of France, producing “vins de garage” or “garage wine”. They were renegade small-lot winemakers, sometimes working in their garage, who refused to follow industry laws and protocol. synonyms: Rebels, pioneers, renegades, individualists, mavericks, driven by passion.
