Peachland Chamber of Commerce
The Peachland Chamber of Commerce is welcoming an easing of COVID-19 health mandates as a way of supporting businesses and the community.
The BC Ministry of Health announced that effective Mar. 11 at 12:01 a.m., face coverings are no longer required for people in all indoor public settings.
The province also announced that effective 12:01 a.m. on Apr. 8, the proof of vaccination card will no longer be required. We are happy to hear that B.C. can move ahead with a substantive change to the health mandates, and we are confident that this will be a significant catalyst for economic recovery. Removing masks means businesses and customers can return to relationships where importance is placed on smiles and connections. And when vaccination passports are no longer required on Apr. 8, businesses and non-profits can welcome everyone. We encourage the public to use the lifting of restrictions to maintain their support for local companies as they are the backbone of our community.

Hainle Vineyard Estate Winery announced the release of their 2022 wines. One of the new wines you can taste is the 2021 Hainle Cuvee, a totally different blend from their 2020 Cuvee that includes Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Vidal, and Sauvignon Blanc this time. A tad sweeter than the 2020 Cuvee but still sits in the dry wine section. It’s a bright, edgy wine with tropical fruit salad flavours on the palate. Pair it with Thai chicken or spring rolls! You can visit the winery located at 5355 Trepanier Bench Rd.
