The 1st YVR Wine Bloggers and Sommeliers Public Tasting
This little group I’m involved in – The YVR Wine Bloggers and Sommeliers – is hosting our first public event on Tuesday, November 10th at Scott Landon Antiques (2349 Granville St.). For me it is really exciting to have an event for the public designed to have passionate people educate them in a non-pretentious way about wine. And, the cost of entry is a very low $25 ($35 at the door).
It will be a “wine show” style tasting with approximately 10 tables. Each table is going to teach one simple wine lesson – for example:
Table 1 The difference between Old and New World;
Table 2 The difference between Warm and Cool Climate;
Table 3 Method Champeniose vs Charmat Method etc etc.
After visiting each of the ten tables the hope is that attendees will have a solid understanding of fundamental wine styles and will have tasted examples of each. I can attest to the high quality of people involved in this and encourage everyone to attend. Wine education can be expensive, and often a bit stuffy. This event promises to nix both of those barriers and give you the tools to pick out a good and interesting bottle when browsing the wine shop. There are only 100 tickets, so it very well could sell out. I will be working at one of the tables, so I hope to see some of you there!
