Marquis Wine Cellars’ Fifth Annual French Fete
Update: Unfortunately, due to slow ticket sales this event has been cancelled this year. Look for it to return next year.
Marquis Wine Cellars is sponsoring a fundraising wine tasting on November 4th, 2009 at the Vancouver Museum. It is entitled French Fête and is a fundraiser for the Fraser Academy School. Fraser Academy specializes in children with dyslexia, ADD and other motor skill output issues. They teach them the necessary skills not only to learn but be successful in business and life.
They will be pouring an excellent selection of French wines, from Burgundy, Bordeaux, Alsace and Champagne. I’ve been to this event before and very much enjoyed it. It truly is an excellent opportunity to discover wines – many of which are from small producers – that you may not have had the opportunity to taste. The wines will be paired with some of Vancouver’s top restaurants such as Le Gavroche, Provence, Salt, & Benton Brothers Fine Cheese, just to name a few.
Tickets are $75.00 per person and they are available by calling the store 604-684-0045 or emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
