Wine & Dine Evenings:
Kitsch / Après Tours


Keefer Lake Lodge is bringing Kitsch to the backcountry! Join us for an eccentric night of wining and dining under a blanket of stars amongst the Monashee Mountain wilderness.

Enjoy a world class pairing experience featuring wines from the Okanagan valley along with a 4-course meal of the same liking.

Local, luxurious, and relaxed is how we’ll tie this experience together, guaranteed to leave your backcountry backyard getaway hankering satisfied; hosted by an unbeatable view of the lake and mountains, harmonious company, and the most enthusiastic service team Keefer and Kitsch have to offer.

About Kitsch

The Kitsch family’s Okanagan roots stretch back to 1910, when Kelowna was still a small, lakefront pioneer settlement. Four generations later, this entrepreneurial family takes great pride in helping to shape the past and the future of the Okanagan Valley.

Founders Ria and Trent Kitsch have blended their passion for wine and creative entrepreneurship to produce premium, sustainably grown wines that pair equally with occasions and Tuesday night Cards Against Humanity games! With a little help from some friends, the family transformed overgrown fields into lush vineyards, set on historic apple orchards that originally served as the Kelowna Land and Orchards (KLO) headquarters.

The single-vineyard wines embody the regions rich soil and sun-soaked valleys. Cultivated through generations of ambition and love, the Kitsch family has captured the Okanagan in a Glass.
