Into The Vineyard 2017

 

From May 7 – 10 a group of 12 wine and knowledge-hungry Albertans headed to BC Wine Country to taste and learn as much as possible about the quality wines created by our neighbours to the west.

 

Our group of 12 for the second annual trip was made up of retailers, educators and representatives from Liquor Connect and the on-premise (restaurant) side of the business.   Arriving on Sunday May 7 we stayed close to our host hotel, the Watermark Beach Resort.  Winery principles from Bella, Phantom Creek Estates, Le Vieux Pin, Nichol and Lock and Worth brought their wines to share with us.  After an overview of their specialties and the selections they brought we all sat down to dinner on the 2nd floor terrace overlooking the lake.
