Celebrate Fall at Veranda Beach


Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Fall is a pivotal season at Veranda Beach – a time of ripening, harvest and celebration.

Veranda’s Vineyard is plump with it’s annual bounty – the grapes turning a deep purple and the vine leaves edging into crimson, burgundy, and butterscotch shades. Sunlight shimmers through the prism of morning mist rising off the lake. Maple leaves along the beach trail deckle with gold.

Celebrate the harvest and join Veranda Beach Winemaker Katy Perry for a vineyard stroll and “Under the Okanogan Sun” picnic inspired by Tuscany on Saturday, October 6th from 12 – 3 pm.   We’ll start with a casual vineyard stroll enjoying a little education on the skills of the grape grower. Then be seated with your fellow guests at our outdoor viewpoint pavilion and enjoy a 3 course rustic Italian inspired lunch, paired with 3 Tuscan style wines from boutique wineries of the South Okanagan. Experience the onset of fall and the changing colors of Washington’s Okanogan and British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley with awe inspiring views from your table along the length of Lake Osoyoos. After lunch take part in our fun Bocce tournament on our official Bocce courts and play for wine prizes and bragging rights!   Under the Okanogan Sun Vineyard Picnic at Veranda Beach
