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

Township 7 Vineyards and Winery in South Langley is hosting an Easter Bunnies and Egg Hunt on Sunday, in support of rabbit and small animal rescue.

From noon to 4 p.m. enjoy brunch and build your own picnic basket, while sampling new wine releases and listening to live music.

There’s also plenty of fun for the kids, too, including a crafts room and the egg hunt, rain or shine. Please RSVP to gail@township7.com by April 5. Admission is by $2 donation.

Partial proceeds from the day’s festivities will be donated to the Small Animal Rescue Society, which has helped place more than 1,500 animals in homes since its inception in 2004.

Visitors are reminded to bring some carrots for “Cucumber” and the other bunnies who will be hopping over for the day. There’s also a new winery puppy, Betsy, who loves carrots, too.

Township 7 has been selected as the Calgary Stampede’s official centennial wine – a huge honour for the South Langley winery.

With that in mind, the winery has announced two new releases, the Centennial Selection 2008 merlot and a Centennial Selection 2009 chardonnay.

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.

In addition to a two-day event July 8-9 in the Okanagan, Township 7 is planning a massive Western Roundup Anniversary party at its south Langley winery during the second week of the Stampede, July 14-15. There will be multiple bands performing, country dancers, a kids fun zone, midway rides and a barbecue.

A country and western concert is planned for July 14: country, alt, indie and rock musicians include Trevor Murray, Todd Richard,Danny Davies, Roger Schmidt, Lisa Nicole, Jet Black and Cory Hawthorn.

Partial proceeds will support the Fibromyalgia Well Spring Foundation.
