The sheer variety of Penticton beauty, from art and wine to craft beer and culinary creations, will be on display as the Palette of Penticton brings those worlds together in one place.

The event hosted by the Rotary Club of Penticton features six wineries, six restaurants, two craft breweries, two distilleries and the work of various local artists.

“(Palette of Penticton) brings everything together and gives people something to do in January because there’s not much that goes on in this town in January,” said Barb Hoolaeff, president of Penticton Rotary.

It all comes together on Jan. 21, starting at 7 p.m. in the South Main Drop-in Centre, 2965 South Main. St.

Penticton and area wineries set to be on display include Back Door Winery, Lang Vineyards, Township 7, Moraine Estate Winery, Mocojo Winery, Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery, Therapy Vineyards and Dirty Laundry Vineyard.

Breweries putting their best craft brews on display include Barley Mill Brew Pub and Cannery Brewing Co.

Providing the spirits are Maple Leaf Spirits.

Tasty eats from around town are provided by Bogner’s of Penticton, Black Iron Grill, Theo’s Restaurant, Spice Magic and Craft Corner Kitchen.

While taking in the tastes of the Okanagan, Martin Street Art and Music Gallery are putting the works of local artists up for auction.

Other items, including 102 bottles of Canadian wine, are up for silent auction.

Tickets are $35 and include three tasting tickets and a souvenir wine glass. Extra tasting tickets are $2 each. Tickets are available at the Martin Street Gallery or from any Rotarian. They’re also available at the door, but don’t miss out, get yours early.
