As an added attraction some of Canada's wineries have been hosting a very popular event known as Sip and Paint. You get the opportunity to visit the winery, taste their wines and learn how to paint directed by a skilled artist. Thanks to David and Allison Zimmerman of Seaside Pearl Farmgate Winery in Abbotsford who gave us an opportunity to take in an event recently.
Popular artist John Ferrie was the instructor, assisting in hosting was John's sister, Cindy Ferrie a marketing consultant in Vancouver. John's affable personality set the mood for a fun time.
The activities took place in the winery's barrel room, a very impressive location on the property with its wood slat walls and gorgeous chandeliers.
