Grab your best girlfriends and head to wine country in Osoyoos as they host Champagne & Stockings, the ultimate holiday getaway.

Happening November 23rd to November 25th, 2012 at Spirit Ridge Vineyard and Resort, Champagne & Stockings will feature fabulous wines, mouth-watering meals from Chef Dave Ryan, a fashion show, a dance party, plenty of shopping, and a silent auction benefitting the South Okanagan Children’s Charity.

The South Okanagan Children’s Charity has assisted families of children with health problems for the past four decades. The Children’s Charity also provides equipment to health-related agencies and awards grants to other organizations that provide health-related services to the region’s children. One hundred percent of the money collected is used to help local children and their families.

Suite packages can be booked at Spirit Ridge for one or two nights starting at $179. Packages include accommodation, dinner, brunch, access to the Champagne & Stockings events and more proving that winter in wine country can be incredibly fun!

Spirit Ridge is located adjacent to Nk Mip Cellars up on the Eastern slope of Osoyoos, overlooking the lake and Nk Mip’s beautiful vineyards. My sister and I stayed there for O! Osoyoos Celebrates and loved the amenities, free WIFI, spacious bathroom, full kitchen, and fireplace in the living room. You can also walk right down to the resort’s ballroom and meeting space from your suite so there’s no need to worry about a ride home from the event’s festivities.
