A vintner from Summerland has been elected to the B.C. Wine Institute’s board of directors.

Christa-Lee Bond of Evolve Cellars in Summerland was named to the board to represent small wineries.

She is one of nine voting members on the board of directors.

“We are excited about the perspective our new and continuing board members will offer as the B.C. Wine Industry continues to grow and evolve,” said B.C. Wine Institute President Miles Prodan.

“We understand the time commitment that it takes to be involved and sincerely appreciate the work that our volunteer Board of Directors and Committee members do for the Wines of British Columbia outside of their positions with their respective organizations.”

The board members were elected at the institute’s annual general meeting on July 6 in Osoyoos.

The B.C. Wine Institute represents 148 B.C. wineries of all sizes. Since 1990, the institute has promoted the province’s wines.
