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

3pm-6pm

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.

This weekend is a our annual free BC wine tasting held in conjunction with BowFEAST. Tasting schedule for the weekend is as follows:

  • Friday 13 August, 4pm to 9pm: Featured winery: Tinhorn Creek
  • Saturday 14 August,  1pm to 5pm+: Featured winery:Dirty Laundry
  • Sunday 15 August, 1pm to 5pm: Featured winery:Blasted Church

There’s a very good chance that there’ll be some others too but you’ll need to come in to find out 🙂

*UPDATE* Add Stag’s Hollow to Friday, Cedar Creek to Saturday & Joie Farm to Sunday

We’ll have some draw prizes for tasters over the weekend (every taster gets an entry, no purchase required). Grand prize will be a gift certificate for a 2 night stay at Tinhorn Creek’s winery guest house in Oliver. Second prize will be a copy of Joie Farm’s “Menus from an Orchard Table” signed by author Heidi Noble.

And to encourage you to ‘Drink BC’ this weekend you’ll get the full 10% case discount any purchase of 6 or more bottles of BC wine (this applies from 10:00am on Friday through 10pm on Sunday)

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.
