To celebrate the summer solstice in the Okanagan, Black Hills Estate Winery is hosting their 14th annual Nota Bene release party on June 21.
Immersed in the middle of Black Hills scenic vineyard guests will experience a true sensory indulgence.
Several experience stations will be interspersed throughout the winery with culinary creations paired with their wines. Rounding it off will be live music and entertainment and an opportunity to meet the team behind Black Hills. Tours of the winery will be taking guests right into the vines to get to know the terroir.
Among the entertainment is the funky beats of headliner the Wassabi Collective from Vancouver and DJ Shakes.
The Wassabi Collective is a five-piece band that fuses everything from pop, rock, hip hop, roots, reggae, funk, jazz and everything in between. The quintet released their second full-length studio record, Get It, in 2010 which was awarded the BCIMA for urban/dance recording of the year. It follows up on their last album Stories Not Forgotten, which won the BCIMA Album of the Year in 2008.
The band placed in the Peak Performance Project Top 20 and their music has been featured on the PBS series Roadtrip Nation. They have previously shared the stage with Bedouin Soundclash, K-OS, Hot Hot Heat and others.
There will also be a beatnik wine poetry reading during the Black Hills wine and poetry pairing session with a guest poet.
Experience a truly unique blind wine tasting experience in the sensory deprivation chamber, their darkened wine cellar.
Honourary host, Olympian Kelsey Serwa, will be on hand to take part in the festivities.
