Next Event: come online for virtual wine

Date May 16th 2020

7:30 PM

Location – in the comfort of your own home, a virtual invite will be sent with confirmed RSVP

Event theme: This is our first virtual wine event at Vancity Wine Club.  Let’s make things easy and fun – here is what you need to do:

Pick up a varietal based wine (no blends) of your choice from the following, but try to pick something either out of your comfort zone or that you havent tried before:

  • Reds: Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Zinfandel
  • Whites: Reisling, Chardonnay, Viognier

We are going to explore some of the characteristics of these varietals, describe them to each other when we taste and see if they can be guessed!  We might also play some fun games…. all in all it should be a fun little wine hang-out to learn a little, laugh a little and drink a little (or a lot – hey we aren’t driving anywhere!)

This event is free, you just need to supply your own bottle of wine!

The theme for this event is going to be a varietal specific look at the world’s most widely planted white grape – Chardonnay!
 
Now ….. let’s address the “elephant on this page” as some of you might be thinking “but I don’t like Chardonnay”.  I want to stop you there and issue a challenge – I think we can find a style of this very diverse varietal to suit everyone.
 
if you join us for this wine event, but are unsure what you like or if you like this varietal — simply mention that in your RSVP and I will provide some guidelines for styles and specific recommendations (like I said I think there is a style of this grape for everyone).  Bring one of these (or your favourite if you are already a Chardonnay lover) to the event and let’s taste, learn and explore this fascinating wine together!
