Taste BC 2011

Posted by Paul Sass, January 27th, 2011 | 1 Comment

I was in Vancouver recently, and attended Taste BC with my daughter, Jessica.   Taste BC 2011, a fundraiser for the BC Childrens Hospital Oak Tree Clinic, was a huge success! The evening saw over 800 people enjoying almost 250 different BC wines, spirits and beers from over 70 producers.  Guests enjoyed Peoples Choice Award Winners Vista D'Oro Walnut Wine 2007 & Rustic Roots Winery Santa Rosa Plum Rose 2009 and freshly shucked raw oysters from Rodney's Oyster Bar.

A total of $8,669.87 was raised this year for the BC Childrens Hospital, Oak Tree Clinic.

The Best of Show was Fairview Cellars Madcap Red 2007 and the Gold Medal winners were:  Sumac Ridge Stellars Jay Brut 2006, Wild Goose Pinot Gris 2009, Wild Goose Autumn Gold 2009, Lake Breeze Gewurztraminer 2009, Thornhaven Gewurztraminer 2009, Nichol Vineyards 9 Mile Red 2008, Prospect Winery The Lost Hats Vidal Ice Wine, Victoria Gin.

Although many of the wines were excellent, my favourites were the Painted Rock Merlot 2007 and Thornhaven's Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer.

This is one of the best events to experience BC wines, and I will definitely be back in January 2012 to do our "research" for you !
