Singers Barney Bentall and Jully Black helped headline a spectacular gala wine weekend in and around Osoyoos last weekend. The rich and famous from all across the North Shore headed to the Okanagan to help celebrate at Sean and Saeedeh Salem’s Enotecca wineries La Stella and Le Vieux Pin. A casual Friday night reception at La Stella, featuring a private concert by Bentall, was followed up by a uber glamorous Saturday night gala at Le Vieux Pin winery complete with five course dinner and another private concert by Toronto based singer Jully Black. Auction items included private boxes from The Vancouver Canucks’ Aquillini family, hotel suites from Bruce Langereis and the new Rosewood Hotel Georgia, VIP boat trips and exquisite art pieces. TV producers from Slice Network’s “Party Mamas” were on hand to capture all the action so stay tuned for more. All proceeds raised benefit the Women United in Philanthropy and the South Okanagan Hospital.
