We are delighted to partner again with Joy Road to provide an exceptional al fresco dining experience under the cherry trees at the private residence of Bella in Naramata, BC.
Joy Road thoroughly embodies “cuisine du terroir” through owners Cam Smith and Dana Ewart, along with Team JRC. Their commitment to using primarily local ingredients to showcase the Okanagan bounty at the height of ripeness, and thus sustaining the farmers and artisans who represent the agricultural heritage of this area, perfectly aligns with the way of life Jay and Wendy cultivate at their Bella homestead.
This intimate dinner of forty guests will begin with a glass of Bella bubble and canapes as we mill under the fruit trees and get to know each other. Then Jay and Team JRC will guide you through a five course meal comprised of local ingredients with each course paired with a Bella sparkling wine. An all sparkling wine winemakers dinner – surely a unique dining experience offered by no other winery in BC.
We look forward to you joining us at our rustic homestead. Contact us for details and tickets at jay [at] bellawines.ca.
Price: $160 (includes GST) available after April 2, 2019

Summerdine is an annual event put on by Les Dames d’Escoffier, British Columbia Chapter, to raise funds for their Scholarship Program which grants scholarships to women with a desire to begin training in culinary, beverage or hospitality fields, and to women already skilled in these fields who seek to refine or further their expertise at an educational institution/course of their choice. For Summerdine dozens of restaurants, vineyards, gardens and cooking schools, from Vancouver Island to Metro Vancouver to the Okanagan, each donate one table for a concurrent dinner party. Each restaurant is priced exactly the same ($80/seat), with each restaurant donating the food menu and table and a winery donating the wine.
Unfortunately, in 2019, Bella will not be holding a Summerdine dinner at the homestead. However, we strongly encourage you to purchase tickets online for another venue to support this worthy cause. More details can be found here.
Please note: for all our events ticket sales are final – no refunds will be issued. However, we usually have a wait list and we would be delighted to introduce you to people who could purchase your tickets from you if you are unable to attend.
