Okanagan Crush Pad offers a new visitor experience
The summer is shaping up to be a great season and tourists are already starting to flock to the Okanagan. After two years of operating with limited space, Okanagan Crush Pad (OCP) has renovated its visitor area to accommodate more people and offer diverse experiences. The winery is now set up to host sit down tutored tastings for up to 10 people at its cellar long table, in addition to offering a relaxed patio seating area for picnics and a new tasting bar in the wine lounge.
The new set up also allows the winery to offer intimate public events for 50 people. In addition to six evening music events between July 3 and September 11, OCP will also host a fundraiser for PADS (Pacific Assistance Dogs Society), called Puppies on the PAD on Saturday, August 16. Okanagan Crush Pad is a long-time supporter of PADS and many of the winery’s lovely labrador retrievers are retired PADS dogs.
“Visitors tell us that OCP offers a unique experience as our guest area is built into the heart of the winery. It is the winery equivalent of an “open kitchen concept” so people can watch our winemakers at work and get a first-hand glance into how our state-of-the-art facility operates. As one of the first wineries in Canada to extensively use concrete tanks you can learn about the benefits and taste the resulting Raised in Concrete™ wines,” Christine Coletta (owner of OCP) comments.
Following is a list of the public events.
Tickets can be purchased online.
