Last Saturday we hosted an in-store tasting of 3 South African wines picked by our wine guy, Paul Rickett and included Moreson Blancs de Blancs brut,  Graham Beck Gamekeeper’s Reserve Chenin Blanc, and Glen Carlou Grande Classique Cabernet Merlot. All the wines were delicious but the star of the show for most was the Graham Beck Chenin. Delightfully crisp, it was a great wine to match with Thanksgiving dinner. We’re going to try and get some more in but this wine was imported into BC as a one-off and may not be available any more.

Next in-store tasting will be in November and will feature wines from Bleasdale Winery in Australia. This has been owned by the Potts family for 5 generations. Alerts will be sent by twitter (from and by email. If you’d like to subscribe to our eGrapevine email newsletter, please send an email to
