Wine aficionados got a taste of Summerland’s finest beverages at the Light Up the Vines tasting event at the end of November.
The wine tasting tour, held on the Saturday of the Festival of Lights weekend, was a successful event, said Lisa Jaager, manager of the Summerland Chamber of Economic Development and Tourism.
More than 360 tickets were sold.
She said hotels and restaurants also saw increased business because of the wine tasting.
She said the only shortcoming was with the shuttle bus service, since there were some glitches in transporting close to 400 people from one winery to the next.
The wine tour, held this year for the first time, will become an annual event, Jaager said.
“We will do it again next year,” Jaager said. “This weekend proved to me Summerland is ready and Summerland can do it. Together, we created something fabulous.”
