John and I stayed at Tigh-Na-Mara last year for the festivities and what happened to be our anniversary weekend as well. The resort went out of their way to welcome us and help us celebrate while we took in events for Parksville Uncorked.
The Burrowing Owl Winemaker’s dinner in the Cedar Room was decadent, with numerous pairings, samples, and courses. Sitting at a table with other media, there were great dinner discussions and the room was hopping with spirited conversation. The best part about having the event at the resort was that we could walk out the door and over to our lodge to retire for the night. Complete with a big soaker tub and a fireplace, our room was perched above sandy beaches and flanked by twisting arbutus trees. It felt like summer camp… for adults.
Parksville is a fantastic coastal getaway at any time of year so visiting for Uncorked and its many events are the perfect time to plan that visit. Call 1-855-254-WINE to book your Parksville Uncorked experience and check out stay packages offered by Tigh-Na-Mara and the Beach Club Resort.
