Light Up the Vines returns in Summerland.

Summerland wineries are also getting into the holiday spirit with a newly expanded sixth annual Light up the Vines celebration.

“Each year, our amazing wineries and cideries along Summerland’s Bottleneck Drive light up their vines and open their doors to mark the start of the festive season,” said Bottleneck Drive Winery Association president Christa-Lee Bond.

In response to the event’s growing popularity, organizers have added an additional day: Light up the Vines runs 3 to 8 p.m. Nov. 19, Nov. 26 and Nov. 27.

Visitors will enjoy wine tastings, sparkling lights, refreshments and music while stocking up on some of the region’s best wines and ciders for holiday entertaining and gift-giving. While touring collect stamps from five wineries to complete a Light up the Vines passport and be entered to win a prize package valued at over $500.

Bottleneck Drive members will also be providing wine tastings during Summerland’s annual Festival of Lights on Nov. 25.
