The inaugural Art of Wine Festival held Saturday at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre was a treat for the senses.

More than 25 wineries, pouring 70-plus wines, combined perfectly with amazing local art and the pleasing sounds of the Stuart Young Trio.

And, to top things off, local restaurants and cheese makers provided other treats for the palette.

Proceeds from the fundraising event went to purchasing new supplies and equipment for the Cultural Centre’s arts and crafts programs.
