Summerhill Pyramid Winery's Fertility Festival May 11, 2012 in Kelowna

Evening at Summerhill Pyramid Winery, Kelowna, BCI still remember Stephen Cipes' enthusiasm for his winery the very first time I met him, well over 10 years ago. He said to me, "It's not just organic, it's BIODYNAMIC!" I pretended to know what he was talking about. All I knew was that I loved the wines and that the vineyard looked unbelievably healthy. The winery was ahead of the curve and has continued to push the bar for sustainable growing in the valley. (They still make great wines too, btw.)

Over the years, I've become a fan of Summerhill's executive chef Jesse Croy too. Here's a good article about him on Tourism Kelowna's website.

This weekend Summerhill Pyramid Winery is hosting a Fertility Festival beginning at 2 p.m. at the winery. Here's a description from the organizer's website:

This event will be indoors and outdoors all over the Summerhill grounds. The various zones are: Art gallery paintings and sculpture in the vineyard, Speakers and art installation in the pyramid, drumming/acoustics and story telling in the Makwala Kekuli, musical stage #1 and seedling perennial and indigenous plant sale and Gaia craft on picnic/wedding area, musical stage #2 and crafters venue in events hall indoors.

There will be organic food, beer and wine available, a shuttle to more parking at the bottom of the hill, carpooling with D.D. to this event is encouraged. We are looking into a shuttle to the Bus depot at KLO campus. We are also currently looking for local artists, crafters, and musicians who would like to be involved.
