The GOODS from Bottleneck Drive
Summerland, BC | Back by popular demand, The 4th Annual Grand Sommelier Express returns June 22 to Summerland’s Kettle Valley Railway Station with two unique events. This is a one-of-a-kind event in the Okanagan and is British Columbia’s only Heritage Steam Train Wine and Food Event.
There are two time slots (1:00pm and 5:00PM) to choose from each offering a different experience. Festivities include a picturesque steam train ride with an on board wine tasting, all while taking in the scenic views of Summerland. The afternoon train makes a quick picture stop (and lavatory) at the trestle; while the evening train begins with a sparkling wine reception and makes a trestle stop to enjoy a special cider and beer tasting along with food and live music.
Both trains return to the station with an outdoor grazing reception complete with live music. Brodo Kitchen and their team of chefs provide the food; and Bottleneck Drive’s wine, cider, beer and brand new distillery serve up tastings of their craft beverages. Before heading home, each attendee will receive a souvenir wine glass to commemorate the day along with discounts along Bottleneck Drive. The Grand Sommelier Express attracts visitors from all around traveling to the Okanagan to take part.
