The Small Guys Festival is rockin’ it out with the Garagistes!
We had so much fun the first time we're doing it again - actually 2 times!
You’ve heard of the little gems, the boutique wineries, the cult followings and the maverick winemakers, but they are often hard to find or to get to. Now we showcase the small case lot artisan wines commercially produced–all gathered in one spot. What’s a garagiste (GAR-aH-jeest )? — It’s a label coined in France to indicate those who stepped outside the lines and broke the rules, taking risks and making small case lots or micro cuvees in their ‘garage’. We think you’ll agree that some interesting things are happening at the front edge of winemaking with these passionate winemakers and growers.
2018 brings you several events to sample these hard to find wines
Kelowna August 19th 2-5 PM The Small Producers Festival will be in Kelowna.
Garagiste Dinners - a smaller, intimate dinner to meet the garagistes in person. TBA
These events are organized by Garagiste North. It was born out of many conversations with small producers who are faced with the difficult realites of getting their wines to the public, and wine lovers who are always looking for those interesting and unique producers but often have difficulty finding them. It seemed like a perfect solution, and a great way to spend an afternoon or evening.
Hope you'll join the party!
A cool festival just got cooler....
Chicken-Like Birds has agreed to join us for the afternoon in Vancouver and share a little of their Ragtime Country Blues sound.. Sip, swirl, visit and listen. It's going to be fun at the Wise Hall just off Commercial.
Tickets are limited, so get yours before you think you need to get yours. If you know what we mean.
