Parksville’s Uncorked Wine and Food Festival is back for a ninth year and tickets are already on sale.

From Feb. 23-26, 2017, people will head to the Beach Club Resort and Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort and Conference Centre for four days focused on B.C.’s wines, beers and cuisine.

The weekend includes tastings, winemakers’ dinners and brunch.

Starting on Feb. 23, 2017 from 6:30-9 p.m. is Parksville Untapped. The Thursday night event at Tigh-Na-Mara shines a spotlight on regional breweries, cideries and distilleries along with samples of distinctive regional dishes. Tickets are $55.

Feb. 24, 2017 from 6:30-9 p.m. is Swirl. The Signature Swirl Wine Tasting at the Beach Club gives people a crack at 100 wineries and delectables from the kitchens of executive chef Rick Davidson of the resort’s Pacific Prime Restaurant and executive chef Eric Edwards of Cedars Restaurant and Lounge at Tigh-Na-Mara. Tickets are $75.

On Feb. 25, 2017 is the Winemakers’ Dinners. The Saturday event offers the chance to dine with one of two B.C. winemakers and experience their bottles with extraordinary food prepared to complement it by the fine chefs at one of the two host resorts.

Tickets are $149 for the Tinhorn Creek Winemakers’ Dinner at Tigh-Na-Mara and tickets are $159 for the Winemakers’ Dinner at the Beach Club Resort.

The final day of Uncorked on Feb. 26, 2017 is Bubbles and Brunch. Bubbles always signify festivity and Parksville Uncorked invariably likes to go out on a high note. People can wrap up their weekend with Bubbles and Brunch at either the Beach Club or Tigh-Na-Mara. There are also weekend packages with the Beach Club and tigh-Na-Mara.

Organizers warn that tickets for the event sell out quickly.
