Catch us at some of these great upcoming events!
RED, WHITE and BLUES
20th anniversary party
Friday Sept 6th, 2019, 6 - 9.30pm
La Frenz Winery
This will be a twilight “can’t keep still” dance party, featuring bluesy rock by the incomparable LeRoy Bell and his only Friends from Seattle. Award winning chef Martin Laprise of The Chef Instead will be providing his fabulous southern style BBQ and of course the award-winning wines of LAFRENZ.
As this is a 20th anniversary party we will be releasing our much anticipated ASTER champagne at this event. We have long believed that true method champenoise wines will be one of the signature wine styles for the Okanagan in the long term. Named in honour of our first grandchild, this is a classic blend of early picked Chardonnay for honey and toast, while the Pinot Noir provides backbone and structure, then aged 3 years on its yeast lees in bottle before disgorging has produced the finest bubbles. The result is beyond incredible and will sit on the table alongside the best from anywhere in the world.
Tickets are a smoking $89 and can be purchased here
or by contacting the winery on 250-492-6690 ext.2 or firstname.lastname@example.org
