There was a lot of wining going at Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort on Friday night. Nobody was actually complaining, though, as there was a lot of good spirits that were offered.
The occasion was the Swirl Signature Event, the second feature of Parksville’s 10th annual Uncorked Wine and Culinary Festival. The four-day event kicked off with Untapped, which showcased regional breweries and distilleries on Thursday night at the Beach Club Resort.
It continued with the wine tasting experience that had approximately 500 people attending. Tickets were sold out for this event, which highlighted some of the finest wine producers in British Columbia.
Aside from discovering the different flavours of wine, guests were treated to an array of finger foods and pastries that were appetizingly served throughout the night to pair with the wine.
The third leg of the festival will continue on Saturday with a pair of winemakers’ dinners, at both the Beach Club Resort and at Tigh-Na-Mara, both 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.
