Big Reds is one of our favourite events of the season, when 300 wine lovers gather in the Village Centre Mall over two nights to sample the best wines from across the Okanagan. It’s a night full of great food, glorious wine and wonderful company. Here are the best moments from last weekend’s event…


1) When Executive Chef, Rob Walker, brought out Kettle Valley Steakhouse’s famed 50oz Tomahawk steak.
