Summer fun at the winery…

Join us this summer for the following special events:

Danielle Caron, exhibition of paintings – July 9 to August 7

Show hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm.

Opening night reception: Wednesday, July 9 between 6 and 9 pm.

Experience the massive and colourful works of this Pender Island painter.  A member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Danielle has exhibited in Vancouver, Montreal and Pender Island.  She reaches into the subconscious for her imagery.  “… my goal is to reach a point where the notion of good or bad, pleasing or ugly, will not be an issue in the way I paint.”

Shirley Valentine Returns – August 1, 2, and 3 at 7pm
Ever yearn to go to the land where they grow the grape and sit by the sea and sip a glass of wine? Well Shirlley Valentine has. Played by former Pender and now Saltspring actor Grace aka “Sheila” Jordan, Shirley returns to Morning Bay for a magical evening of comedy and drama. Join us Saturday night for a special Mediterranean Winemaker’s Dinner before the show. Admission for the play is $20 per person, $10 for students. Children and dogs on leashes free, although be advised there is some adult content. Three-course supper with wine, gratuities, taxes and play admission is $95 per person. Tickets available at the winery or in the usual Island outlets.

Winestock 2008 – Saturday, August 30 from noon ’til dusk
Our biggest party of the season. Five bands, 10 hours of music, food, wine, arts and fun. This year, our third, we feature Spirit of the West in our oceanfront vineyard. Also in the line-up this year, Dave Rave formerly of “Teenage Head” returns, as does Wyckham Porteous, Simon Kendall and the Morning Bay City Rollers, our rockin’ house band. Don’t miss the hottest party on the Island. Tickets just $25 per person and available at the winery or all the usual outlets.
