Liquidity Winery in Okanagan Falls

The Path to Liquidity

PRESENTED ON SEP 08, 2016
IN PENTICTON @ VOL 5

What do Fruit of the Loom, the 1988 Calgary Olympics and wine have in common? Ian MacDonald traces their unlikely connection which led him to opening Liquidity winery. Aware of the vibrancy needed to support this path, Ian includes some of his plans for sustainability, and his passion behind the venture. This centers on bringing more artists to the Okanangan, and more of the Okanagan to artists, through free public artists talks, and a rotating collection of incredible sculpture and paintings.

Wine a Little, Laugh A Lot!

Kathleen thought she won the lottery when she and her new family moved into their new home and discovered a mature pear tree growing in the front yard…until they tried to eat one. The pears were either rock hard or complete mush, with no happy medium. She tried every which way to make something edible out of the fruit, but nothing turned out quite right. Kathleen finalized realized that the solution to her problem was not edible, but drinkable! Join maker and crafter extraordinaire Kathleen Angelski are she guides us through the step-by-step journey of making pear wine.
