British Columbia – The Final Frontier
If you are visiting, you may not know that British Columbia makes exquisite wines. Why can’t you find this gorgeous juice anywhere else? It’s quite simple really; we drink it all here!
British Columbia sits at the 50th parallel, just teetering over the edge of where viticulture is possible. Join us for an evening of discovery to learn about the icons of the industry and why these trailblazers don’t stray from walking that fine line between madness and genius!

With Love From Argentina
Few grapes are as indelibly connected to a place as Malbec is to Argentina. Yet, you may be surprised to learn that Malbec is a Bordeaux variety from France, having travelled to Argentina in the 1850’s.
Tango with Malbec and we’ll dance all the way from the north of the country where the highest altitude vineyards in the world rise to 3000 feet; to the historic center of Mendoza below the Andes Mountains; to Patagonia, the explorer’s paradise in the south. But be prepared; Malbec isn’t the only dance partner you’ll meet!

Wines from Old Vines
If left to their own devices, grape vines can live much longer than humans. And athough it is true that old vines can’t produce as many grapes as they can in their virile youth, certainly their juice gets more concentrated as the vines age.
It’s a tough econonmic choice for producers to hold onto their old vines.
Come explore the complexities of wines that pack more punch with every drop in Wines from Old Vines!

Lords of the Dirt – Pinot Noir
The best wines are made in the vineyard and Pinot Noir is the perfect example of this. It’s finicky but if you coax it with gentle love and respect it’s boundaries, you may just end up with a great wine. Handle it with a heavy hand or give it too much oak, and it’s alluring perfume is lost forever. Come see what the fuss is about in Dirt, Rocks and Mushrooms!
