We’re celebrating Bowen Island Steamship Days with a free tasting of our newly arrived Spanish wines. In the line-up will be
Bodegas Bogarve La Cruz – 100% Sauvignon Blanc, very crisp new world style
Bodegas Zagarron Hacienda Zargon – 100% Macabeo, nice light patio wine
Altavins Viticultur Almodi red blend – Syrah, Garnacha, Carignan and Merlot delivers a big spicy complex wine
Bodegas Fernando Castro Piedras Rojas – 90% Tempranillo,10% Syrah. Good all rounder for BBQ and under screwcap too
Bodegas Isidro Milagro La Rioja – 100% Garnacha from Spain’s premier wine region Rioja. I love this wine
Bodegas Isla Oro – 100% Crianza Tempranillo, medium body and great taste.
Ego Bodegas Atalaya Dorada – 50/50 Monastrell/Syrah, super value for an easy drinking wine
All these wines will be 10% off too on Saturday. Great opportunity to taste and stock up.
Steamship Days start this Saturday July 7 and we help kick-off the celebration with a free wine tasting at the Bowen Beer and Wine Cellar with two special guests.
Complementary Tasting of Bartier & Scholefield and Haywire BC wines
Saturday July 7
Our guests are:
David Scholefield: David is Mr. Wine Industry in Vancouver. He is a partner in the new BC Okanagan Crushpad winery some of whose wines bear his name (Bartier & Scholefield) and the VP of Wine Strategy at leading BC importer Trialto.
DJ Kearney: One of Vancouver’s most well-known sommeliers. She is an expert on Chilean wine, wine judge at untold numbers of Canadian wine competitions and, appropriately, has deep connections with Bowen Island. DJ was the leader of the first wine appreciation course I ever took, held here at Tuscany Restaurant many years ago and her sister lives on Bowen so she is a frequent visitor.
Please drop in and taste these fine BC wines and ask questions about wine from this pair of engaging experts – you won’t be disappointed.
