The Sip With Your Sweetheart event is something we at Roots & Vines Tour Co. look forward to all year. A great chance for people to get out and sample the incredible wines being made in the Okanagan, or for locals to go back to their favourite wineries, even though they already know and love the wines. Plus, the special addition of carefully curated pairings of chocolates and desserts at each winery makes it irresistible. So get out there, Kelowna! Chocolate and wine, with your darling on your arm – what could be better?

When? February 10th & 11th. Where? Boucherie Rd. and area.

Quick rabbit trail here, I want to tell a story…
The Sip With Your Sweetheart event has a bit of a special place in my heart because of the timeline of my relationship with my wife. The first time Roots and Vines was involved with the event was in 2015 and Danielle and I were just newly dating. We had started dating mid-December of 2014, and then by February we took the leap and toured as a double-date with my parents! It was a blast.


By the time February 2016 rolled around, we were engaged! I proposed in the new year, (on January 2nd because I thought January 1st would be too conspicuous, and I wanted it to be a surprise!), and so that Valentine’s Day was a big one for us. While that might seem short for some, one year of dating was enough for us to know we were meant to be together. We had seen each other in all four seasons, and we still wanted to be forever-partners! Quite something, isn’t it?

Sip With Your Sweetheart 2016


We were engaged for six months, and got married in July 17th, 2016. Which means that by the next Valentine’s Day, we were married 🙂 Three consecutive years of the Sip With Your Sweetheart event had taken us through every stage of our relationship: from doe-eyed sweethearts infatuated with each other to bold makers of big scary commitment decisions, to a pair of people who are settling into a new reality of shared living and dreaming (and still very much head over heels for each other ).
