Enjoy the sparkle of the season while touring Summerland wineries Summerland wineries will kick-off the holiday season with a newly expanded sixth annual Light up the Vines celebration. “Each year, our amazing wineries and cideries along Summerland’s Bottleneck Drive light up their vines and open their doors to mark the start of the festive season,” says Bottleneck Drive Winery Association President Christa-Lee Bond. In response to the event’s growing popularity, organizers have added an additional day: Light up the Vines runs 3 – 8 p.m. Saturday Nov. 19, Saturday Nov. 26 and Sunday Nov. 27. Visitors will enjoy wine tastings, sparkling lights, refreshments and music while stocking up on some of the region’s best wines and ciders for holiday entertaining and gift-giving. While touring collect stamps from five wineries to complete a Light up the Vines passport and be entered to win a prize package valued at over $500. Contact local tour operators about guided tour options or participate in a self-guided tour. Bottleneck Drive members will also be providing wine tastings during Summerland’s annual Festival of Lights on Nov. 25.
