Grand Sommelier Express raises funds for steam railway

Grand Sommelier Express raises funds for steam railway

In June, the 23 members of Bottleneck Drive Winery Association hosted a tasting experience on-board the elegantly restored Kettle Valley steam train, showcasing delicious offerings from local wineries alongside the natural beauty of Summerland.

Following a sparkling reception, guests enjoyed the scenic 90-minute train ride with wine tastings. After a trestle-side stop to sample Bottleneck Drive’s hand-crafted beer and ciders, guests enjoyed a three-course dinner paired with Bottleneck Drive wines.
