To Die For Weekend: The 3rd Annual Osoyoos Celebrity Wine Festival

It kind of feels like Christmas, minus Santa and the tree, add Jason Priestley and a few thousand grape vines. Osoyoos Celebrity Wine Festival is the kind of event you look forward to all year long.

This year, OCWF takes place from June 9 – 11. The celebrity guests attending are Jason Priestley, Terry David Mulligan, Elise Estrada, and more.

Events include the Sunset Sabre Soiree at Spirit Ridge Resort, The International Wine Showdown at Watermark Beach Resort, a Celebrity Wine Auction & Beach Party at Walnut Beach Resort, the Note Bene Release Party at Black Hills Estate Resort, and more. View the full list of events here.

Here are some great memories from last year:

This year, United Way is OCWF’s official charity. Since 2009, the wine festival has donated over $50,000 to charity.

Hope to see you there!

Wishing you to die for food on a daily basis,
