We're teaming up with Gregg Peacock to help him raise funds for the 2012 Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer® , a 250km ride from Vancouver to Seattle with the goal of raising money for the BC Cancer Foundation.
Tickets are $25 and you can buy them online. Doors are at 7pm and you can enjoy wine, beer, cider and cheese until 9pm. We've invited many of our suppliers to pour samples of delicious products and nibble on Benton Brother's Fine Cheese.
The store will still be open Wednesday night, but you can expect to see a lot more people hanging around with a wine glass on Wednesday.
We hope you'll join us, and we wish Gregg the best of luck with his ride!
We agree with Jurgen Gothe's sentiment in his recent article in the Georgia Straight, "Pink's in forecast for spring," however we have to correct him about a few of the wines' availablity ... winery only? We don't think so...
We'd love to invite you in to find some of those pink wines on our shelves! 8th Generation Confidence Frizzante Rosé 2011 has been in our shop for a while, but the quantities won't last much longer. JoieFarm Rosé 2011 is here in both 750ml and larger formats. We proudly carry the entire Clos du Soleil range, including the delicious new Rose 2011.
You can also make your purchases online now, too.
Enjoy the sun and we hope to see you soon!
Spain is such an amazing wine country for value. Take this 2004 Reserva Rioja – it’s had all this time in the bottle to develop and integrate, yet it is still so affordable! Rioja is always a good choice for people who like more developed flavours and aromas in wine, but don’t want to wait to cellar wines themselves.
This wine is medium-bodied, complex and delicious with anything from meat to stews to cheeses.
The beautiful colour was enough to sell me on this wine. But when I tasted it I was further sold on the lovely, fresh strawberry and citrus flavours. This rosé is no white zin – it is totally dry and even has a spiced character. It’s a great pair with duck, turkey, salads, or spice-rubbed lobster tails. And glasses of Tavel add a perfect touch of class to the table.
I have a sweet tooth and this scotch really does it for me. It is extra matured in Sauternes casks. If you’re not familiar with Sauternes, it’s the most delicious dessert wine from Bordeaux, France (and it’s kinda famous – you should try some too). I like to drink this with one ice cube and some very good conversation.
