Everyone knows that we love dogs at Monte Creek Winery.

So, when the opportunity came up to help out our canine companions and our other four-legged friends, we jumped at the chance.

The Event

The BC SPCA Kamloops & District branch is launching a series of events called Tail Gate in association with the Kamloops Wine Trail. This event is brand-new this year, and there will be three held throughout the month of August. Tail Gate will be at

  • Harper’s Trail Winery on August 5, 2021,
  • Privato Winery on August 12, 2021, and
  • Right here at Monte Creek Winery for the finale on August 19, 2021!
Music at the Winery


Each event comes with wine (naturally), charcuterie boxes (don’t worry- we have vegan and vegetarian options), and live music. They all run from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM.

We do ask that you bring your own blanket or lawn chair when you come visit, and that you be prepared for whatever kind of weather we might have- whether that means sunscreen or an umbrella.

If that’s too much excitement for you, not to worry, there is a Picnic Pick Up option, where you can buy a ticket to pick up charcuterie, a bottle of wine, and a wine tasting voucher at the Noble Pig.


As always, we want to make sure that you can enjoy our wine safely, and so does the SPCA and Kamloops Wine Trail. In order to help with that, the BC SPCA has partnered with Divine Tours to offer you a way home if you need one. There is also a round trip (door to vineyard) option for only $25 per person. You can book your spot at


Unfortunately, this is turning into a rough season for wildfires. We want to support the animals and help you have a good time, but we also need to consider the safety of our staff and guests. Therefore, if the wildfires cause problems, we won’t be cancelling the event, but your dinner, wine, and a tasting room coupon will be available for pick up at the Noble Pig, and you’ll have a link emailed to you to enjoy the music from the comfort of your home. This way everyone stays safe, and the animals at the SPCA can still get the help they need.

Buy a Ticket

We are so excited to be able to host events and see everyone again- getting to help out the SPCA is just a really awesome bonus. If you are as excited to get out and about as we are, and you love great food, wine, and music- not to mention animals- you’ll love this event.
