This post has three parts: first the dinner, followed by some flora and then fauna (aka critters) from the Similkameen and Okanagan Valleys.
As I mentioned in the introduction the dinner was at Orofino Winery near Caston in the Similkameen Valley. The Winery partnered again this year with Joy Road Caterers to offer a 1.6 mile dinner; almost all the ingredients were sourced from within 1.6 miles of the winery. We arrived for the dinner (on a shuttle bus), and were greeted by our hosts, John and Virginia, and offered a glass of one of their newest wine offerings Moscato Frizzante.
As we enjoyed our frissante the appetizers were passed.
Wouldn't be a winery without grapes and grapevines.
Some of the flowers, trees and plants

A dove and a baby bird hanging around near the feeder, maybe they enjoyed watching the indoor cat.
|When I took this it reminded me of something but for the life of me I can't remember what.|
|Loved the colours and patterns reflected in this tasting sample.|
