One of B.C.’s most unique food and wine events is returning to the South Okanagan this spring.
May 2 is your chance to Pig Out at the fourth annual party at Covert Farm, from 1 to 4 p.m. Join the 36 wineries of the Oliver Osoyoos Winery Association at the al fresco tented affair, which showcases new release wines and fan favourites.
Chefs from eight local restaurants, including Miradoro at Tinhorn Creek Vineyards, Platinum Bench Bakery, Watermark Beach Resort and Covert Farms, will be taking part in the day and the chefs’ pig roasting skills will be put to the test when they are challenged to be creative with the theme ‘if pigs could swim.’ Taste the results when top local chefs combine pork with the best food to be found in the water, from seaweed to local salmon.
Pig Out tickets ($49) are available online and include entertainment from local musicians, a souvenir wine glass, food and wine.
Helicopter rides over McIntyre Bluff will also be available for $50 per person. For more information visit www.CovertFarms.ca.
