Happy hunting at local winery this Easter

Hunting for an Easter outing that appeals to kids – and adults?

Township 7 Vineyards and Winery in South Langley is holding its fifth annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday.

From noon to 4 p.m. enjoy chardonnay seminars, live music, plus home baked goodies and picnic basket fare (charcuterie, local cheeses, and artisanal chocolate) so you can spread out on the winery’s new deck.

Wine tastings by the glass will be available all day.

There’s also plenty of fun for the kids, too, including birdhouse building by donation, and the egg hunt, rain or shine. Please register by April 21.

Also look for unique handmade bunny ears, artisanal chocolate for sale and more.

Partial proceeds from the day’s festivities will be donated to the Small Animal Rescue Society, which has helped place more than 1,5000 animals in homes since its inception in 2004.

The seminars with Township 7 winemaker Brad Cooper will explore different winemaking styles, the difference between the Okanagan Valley and the Fraser Valley when it comes to grape-growing, and will suggest different food and wine pairings.

The winery has two new releases, a 2009 chardonnay and a 2009 un-oaked chardonnay, crafted from grapes from the Oliver area; the winery partners with Black Sage Vinyard and Cerqueira Vineyard on the famed Black Sage Road.

Township 7’s wines are handcrafted in small lots in its vineyards in the south Okanagan Valley and in Langley, the location of its Fraser Valley vineyard and wineshop at 21152 16 Avenue. Its Naramata vineyard and winery is located at 1450 McMillan Avenue, Penticton.
