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.
