Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country offers complimentary shipping and other benefits
Many wineries are sharing creative ways to engage and support customers
OLIVER, B.C. March 26, 2020: In an effort to support customers and encourage social distancing, many wineries in Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country are offering complimentary or discounted shipping for customers, who are stocking their cellars during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Now is a crucial time to support British Columbia’s wine industry. Many of the 45 wineries in Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country are family-owned and operated, and all are feeling the impact of the significant changes to society that have been seen over the past two weeks.
“Following the closure of tasting rooms and shuttering of BC restaurants, the access to the South Okanagan’s incredible portfolio of wines has been reduced,” says Jennifer Busmann, executive director of Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country. “Our wineries are encouraging consumers to purchase directly with delivery to their door. We encourage everyone to support small, family-run businesses during this immensely challenging time by stocking kitchen wine racks and cellars with bottles from British Columbia’s most award-winning wine region.”
