Parksville’s 10th annual Uncorked Wine and Culinary Festival kicked off without a single sip of wine at the Beach Club Resort Thursday evening, March 8.
But the wine is on its way.
More than 300 guests sampled selections from 25 B.C. breweries, as well as five distilleries and five cider houses as the festival debuted with the Untapped beer and food tasting event. The beer, ale and cider offerings were paired by a variety of regional food delicacies, accompanied by live, acoustic music.
Parksville uncorked resumes Friday evening, March 9, with its signature Swirl event, an evening of wine and food tasting at Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort. Swirl begins at 6:30 p.m.
On Saturday, March 10, Uncorked continues with a pair of winemakers’ dinners, at both the Beach Club and Tigh-Na-Mara, also beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The four-day festival wraps up Sunday with a pair of Bubbles and Brunch events, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at each resort.
