The Chicken Foot Toothpick
There may be more … elegant occasions … at the Okanagan Spring Wine Festival, but few are as much flat out fun as the annual Pig Out at Covert Farms.
This was the third annual Pig Out, and as usual featured as its centerpiece a seemingly unlimited pig roast.
There were 31 wineries on site providing the quaffables, including Covert Farms itself with its Amiticia, which just won a Best Of Award at the Best of Varietals in Penticton last week.
Seven restaurants also put on a feast with chicken and pork as the theme of the day, while Valhalla Helicopters was offering chopper rides for $50 a person. Terrific music, a giant ‘bounce sausage’ for the kids, and great wines under a sunny sky; Covert Farms and the Oliver – Osoyoos Wine Country Association absolutely rocked it this year, making for one of the best events of the 2014 Okanagan Spring Wine Fest.
