"Les Mis" at Culmina Family Estate Winery, Oliver BC

On July 13th Culmina Family Estate Winery hosted guests from Vancouver's Arts Club Theatre Company to enjoy a night of Okanagan wine and food and to perform exerpts from their summer production of Les Miserables, for a group of 50 or so attendees for the magical event.

Culmina has partnered with the Vancouver based arts organization for the season as a sponsor and they warmly welcomed Chris Sams and Kate Blackburn, gems of the cast for the evening in Oliver on the Golden Mile Bench, where Culmina's elegant winery is perched amongst its vineyards.

If you have a chance to catch the show in Vancouver we are happy to share that Culmina Family Estate Wines are available at the concession.
