All winter long Sociale Enoteca by Villa Rosa is hosting a series of extraordinary multiple course menus paired with the exceptional wines of the Okanagan’s finest wineries.

Taste, Talk and Indulge the tantalizing flavours of Sociale Enoteca and Lightning Rock Winery

This exciting evening event will be guided in tandem by Lightning Rock’s Owner, Ron Kubek, and new Winemaker/Vigneron, Sébastien Hotte. Kubek will enliven guests with years of anecdotes and accolades that contributed to the success of this boutique winery. Hotte, in his first public appearance since joining the team in February 2023, will share of his holistic vision for the care of the vineyards this season, and low-intervention plans for Lightning Rock’s future portfolio.

There is a connection between farmer and plant, vigneron and vine. Giving sweat and time and taking the fruit each season. The memory created from farm to glass. The farmer knows the benefits of the bugs and hawks. The worms and weeds. The curses of fire and disease. Water is life. A breeze has a purpose… It takes real work. Real care.

We are the lucky stewards of three unique pinot noir producing vineyards in Summerland, BC. Each of them expresses very distinct terroir through the wines, despite being located mere kilometres apart. What we offer is an exploration of Summerland through wine.

We are grateful to do this work. When we bring fruit out of the fields and into the cellar, it is with many careful hands. The skins and seeds and stems are composted, recycled, renewed back into the soil. Giving the energy back to the vine.

Check them out in Summerland, BC at 6611 Giants Head Rd.
