Tickets are now on tap for a traditionally sell out event pairing wine and high altitude.

Experience Mile High Wine, Cider & Spirits Tasting at 5,280 feet above sea level at SilverStar Mountain Resort Aug. 10. The BC Wine, Cider & Spirits Festival and SilverStar are proud to bring back Canada’s highest outdoor tasting. Taste British Columbian craft wines, ciders, spirits and beer; enjoy delicious food, shop artisan vendors, and listen to live music from Chipko Jones right in the resort village.

Exciting new additions to the event in 2019 include the inclusion of cider, spirits and beer as this event solely offered wine in previous years; as well as the team from Public Liquor hosting an onsite liquor store. Public Liquor will offer the guests the ability to purchase their favorites of the day right at the venue, to take home.
