OLIVER, British Columbia – Tinhorn Creek Vineyards, one of the most visitor-friendly wineries in the Okanagan Valley, has announced the return of its Canadian Concert Series this summer.

The concert series kicks off May 28 with the Pernell Reichert Band, which is a folk-country act. Tickets for this concert are $30.

The concert series concludes Sept. 10 with the post-punk band 54-40. The band consists of Neil Osborne, Brad Merritt, Matt Johnson and Dave Genn, who have been together since 1981 and have put out 16 albums together. Tickets are $75.
Patrons for any of these concerts will have the opportunity to enjoy award-winning wines from Tinhorn Creek Vineyards and barbecue-style food options from Miradoro Restaurant, which is Tinhorn Creek’s on-site restaurant.

About Tinhorn Creek Vineyards
Tinhorn Creek Vineyards was established in 1993 just south of Oliver, B.C., in what has been known as the Golden Mile Bench. It is headed by Sandra Oldfield, president and CEO, who is a California ex-pat who worked in Sonoma County before heading north with husband Ken Oldfield.
The winery has two vineyards: its estate Tinhorn Creek on the west side of the valley and its Diamondback Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench on the east side.
In 2011, Tinhorn Creek Vineyards partnered with Manuel Ferreira of Le Gavroche restaurant in Vancouver to open Miradoro, a restaurant at the winery that provides stunning panoramic views of the valley along with award-winning cuisine that focuses on locally sourced ingredients. The restaurant is open from March through December.
