Enjoy a tasteful evening exploring local stories and local wines with artist David McIntosh and photographer Andrew Barton in Peachland. The two-night event takes place at the Yellow Schoolhouse at 7 pm Friday, October 11 and Saturday, October 12.

Performer David McIntosh will share Peachland stories he’s discovered with wines he’s tasted. On display will be Barton’s photography, which takes another kind of look at terroir. The interactive exhibition invites guests to “pair” quotes from local vineyard proprietors with stunning photographs of Okanagan wineries.

“Taking advantage of McIntosh’s training as a sommelier and the ergonomics of serving wine, this unique storytelling performance allows for the consideration of our bodies as vessels of myth, history, lies, desire and geography,” says Denise Kenney, assistant professor in the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at UBC’s Okanagan campus.

Over the last five years, Vancouver-based McIntosh has been creating site-specific works that explore the traces of lives lived amongst the structures and histories that surround us.

The term terroir has its origins in France, where its “sense of place” refers to the natural environment in which particular wines are produced.

Seats are limited. Phone 250-807-9648 to reserve tickets. Donations at the door.
The Yellow Schoolhouse is located on Beach Avenue in Peachland
