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.
I attended the California Wine Fair tasting on the 7th. A winery that has impressed me for 2 years running now is Laird Family Estate from the Napa Valley. Sharon Laird has kindly given me a bottle of their Pinot Grigio to share with you so drop by and taste a very nice white wine. If you like it we’ll bring it in to the store.
