Premier planning wine stop
at Oliver’s Tinhorn Creek

John Horgan is back in the South Okanagan today. He was in Osoyoos last April to help with the Colleen Ross.

Premier John Horgan is scheduled to be in the South Okanagan today — opening with a breakfast in Penticton and enjoying some Oliver wine later this afternoon.

The Premier will begin the day with a morning meet-and-greet in Penticton, according to the Penticton NDP constituency association.

The group is advertising on its Facebook page a breakfast event at The Nest and Nectar restaurant.

“This is a chance for John Horgan to hear from Penticton constituents and for us to meet the man leading the fight for a better B.C.,” the post reads.

The event is free, open to the public and starts at 7:30 a.m.

Later, the premier, accompanied by his Agricultural Minister, Lana Popham, and Miles Prodan, president and CEO of the BC Wine Institute, will help kick off B.C. Wine Month with a visit to Tinhorn Creek Winery south of Oliver.

The entourage is scheduled to tour the vineyard, tasting rooms and Miradoro restaurant round 3:30 p.m.

The two South Okanagan ridings are currently held by Liberal MLAs — Linda Larson and Dan Ashton.
