Penticton welcomes the 2013 Wine Bloggers Conference

June 7, 2013

 

After a whirlwind cross-country visit to Philadelphia, I'm back in British Columbia as my back-to-back food blogging/wine blogger conference travels continue. I had a quick two days rest at home on Vancouver Island after returning from Philly, then (still a little jet-lagged) I hopped in the car and headed east this morning for another day of travel, this time to BC's Okanagan wine country.

And oh my, Penticton was certainly waiting - with a wine and food pairing al fresco evening, a gorgeous Okanagan sunset, live music and performances, and incredible local food from Joy Road Catering paired with wines from throughout the area. Not to mention the backdrop of rolling green hills of grapes at See Ya Later Ranch Winery, the perfect setting to kick off WBC's first visit to a Canadian location.

I'll be sharing many more of my wine and cuisine tasting experiences in days to come, but wanted to share a few snapshots of this memorable evening now.

To hear more from the 250 wine & food bloggers attending the conference from around North America (and beyond), check out the Twitter hashtag #WBC13 to follow along with live tweets throughout the weekend. I'll also be live tweeting about my experiences all weekend on my @devourNconquer Twitter feed.

See Ya Later Ranch was such an awesome experience with great views and food. It was nice meeting you and your website is lovely.
