orofino winery’s 1.6 mile dinner

Lucky us, we snagged tickets to the sold-out 1.6 mile dinner event at Orofino winery, in the gorgeous Similkameen Valley just south west of Penticton.  We carpooled with friends Mike and Jennifer, and were treated to a beautiful evening of fine wine, stunning scenery and thoughtful food from the talented and passionate Joy Road Catering.

Not a bad welcome to day one of our Okanagan mini-sabbatical, was it?
