Tour d'Epicure

June 9, 2018  ~ 6:00am until 8:00pm ~ Starting Line @ Spirit Ridge Resort

Tour d’Epicure is an exciting one-day cycling and epicurean adventure for the connoisseur of food, wine and cycling! Discover the scenic pleasures, classic cycling routes and unmatched food and wine delights of the Okanagan Valley. Tour d’Epicure raises money to support the cause of childhood cancer in British Columbia.

The Okanagan Valley provides an uncommon blend of panoramic views, flavorful wines, and relaxed cycling along quiet back roads. Every road is a joy to pedal whatever your expectations, from the striking Okanagan Valley to the sun-kissed vineyard paths. We’ll eat well, drink even better, and savor all the rich flavors that have made this area world famous. Get ready to enjoy a day filled with many of the finer things in life… friends, wine, food, cycling and of course, supporting a great cause.

Starting from Spirit Ridge Resort we make our way to Hester Creek to start off your wine sampling experience. We then meander our way through spectacular scenery to get us to See Ya Later Ranch for a great lunch and the most spectacular view of mountains, vineyards and Skaha Lake. After savouring lunch and the view we’ll descend through Okanagan Falls and turn back south onto Black Hills Estate of the famed Black Sage Road for dessert. Our final stop on the ride is a private vineyard, SunRock, nestled away from the crowds under a large exposed rock that captures the heat of the sun for its vines. We’ll end the day back at Spirit Ridge where we’ll freshen up and head to dinner at Nk’Mip, the first Aboriginal-owned winery in North America.

Every Sip Takes you Back.

Every Sip Takes you Back.

The Osoyoos Indian Band, devoted to hard work, innovation, and responding to the challenges of nature, registered under the Indian Act as a reserve in 1877. The centuries-old home of the Osoyoos Indian Reserve is 32,000 acres of Sonoran Desert landscape. Surrounded by time-weathered mountains and dotted by magnificent mirrored lakes, it reaches from Vernon to Tonasket and from Rock Creek to Princeton, with settlements including Osoyoos, Keremeos, Penticton and Kelowna owing their names to the Aboriginal language.

Here in the hottest and driest part of Canada, over 500 Osoyoos Band members secure and share a legacy of hard work and a passionate respect for nature. The word Nk’Mip translates to “Bottomland” in English, being located at the southern end of the Osoyoos reservation.Today, the Nk’Mip Cellars are one of many business, health, social, educational and municipal initiatives that have earned the Band financial independence and high employment.

We are what we were
and always will be.
