Wine Festival another huge success for local club

The Castlegar Sunrise 2000 Rotary Club held its 15th Annual Wine Festival April 5.

The Castlegar and District Community Complex was turned into a wine tasting ballroom last Saturday.

The Castlegar Sunrise 2000 Rotary Club held its 15th Annual Wine Festival  April 5 and once again the event was a huge success.

Every year the event is sold out and this year was no exception.

It was Carol and John Moroz’s fourteenth straight year travelling from Nakusp for the event.

The tastings featured a wide range of B.C. wineries, from Creston to the Similkameen.

As a special treat, Creston’s Tabletree was also on hand for people to taste its world award winning organic pure black cherry juice.

To accompany celebrators was some wonderful piano and violin courtesy of Denise Ford and Brie Hurlbert.

“We had another very successful wine festival.  The support that we receive from the wineries and the businesses in our committee is amazing, said Alexia Turner, one of the organizers for the event. “The money raised will help us build a new multi-use facility in Twin Rivers Park and send poor children to school in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.”
