What you'll do
Tasting wines can be intimidating! But that’s not how we do it in Vancouver. You will learn about the secrets of the sommeliers, the best methods of tasting and how to focus the senses and appreciate what's in the glass, without preconceptions. No tasting experience needed but come prepared for a relaxing and fun evening. You will learn about unique conditions within British Columbia that lead to the colors, aromas, flavors, and textures in your glass. We have designed this experience to be interactive and educational for wine lovers of all levels. You will leave with your own toolkit for wine tasting and a level of knowledge that will impress your friends. You bring the pallet and we bring the wine.
