Tinhorn Creek Winery serves up music in the Okanagan

Tinhorn Creek Vineyards in Oliver has announced the line-up for its 2012 Canadian Concert Series.

Tinhorn Creek Vineyards has announced the line-up for its 2012 Canadian Concert Series, offering an opportunity to see some of Canada’s newest musical talent while sipping award-winning wines and enjoying a panoramic view of the South Okanagan Valley.

Tinhorn Creek’s outdoor amphitheatre sits atop the winery’s hillside overlooking the famed Golden Mile, and is a one-of-a-kind venue for dancing the night away under the stars. Starting in May, the 2012 Canadian Concert Series features up-and-coming Canadian talent every month through the end of the summer.

The Boom Booms, from East Vancouver, open the festival on May 26 with their Latin-soul-funk-rock-reggae music. Then, in June, the focus turns to a more lyrical sound as Victoria-based pop-rock quartet Acres of Lions takes the stage on June 23. They are followed on July 28 by Redeye Empire and their blend of reggae, ska, rock and hip-hop. Vancouver quintet Said the Whale caps off the four-part series on August 25 with its brand of west coast indie pop, bubblegum folk, hard rock and ukelele ballads.

Miradoro Restaurant will offer several different barbecue meal options prepared by Chef Jeff Van Geest and Tinhorn Creek wines will be available by the glass or bottle. Miradoro, which was named one of the world’s best winery restaurants by Wine Access Magazine, also offers dinner and concert packages for those wishing to sit on the patio during the concert.

There are only 500 tickets available for each show, on sale now through Tinhorn Creek’s online stores at store.tinhorn.com and facebook.com/TinhornCreek or by phone at 250-498-3743 or 888-484-6467. There are also 150 season passes available, with tickets to all four concerts.
