I am very honoured to be presenting three tasting seminars at Whistler Cornucopia 2022.
“Top Value Wines” I’m co-presenting with the delightful Mya Brown on Remembrance Day 4pm Friday November 11th. It’ll be a vinous variety thrill-ride of our current favourite values. Buy early as this is a perennial sell out!
“Silence of the Lambruscos” will delight and surprise you with the delicious range of dry, artisan, craft Lambruscos. You’ll bubble over with excitement as we explore the mosaic of different Lambrusco varieties and styles. 2pm Saturday November 12th
“Rosé, Italian Style” is a tasty explosion of Italy’s blushing embarrassment of Rosato – Italian rosé. Italy thinks and drinks pink in almost every wine-producing corner of the country often made with indigenous local varietals. Join me on an alt-pink tasting journey 2:30pm Sunday November 13th
My journey has and continues to lean to experiential learning driven by curiosity and context. This means face-to-face time with winemakers, wine families, wine exporters, wine consortiums and wine import agents….attendance at global wine events, on trade buying missions, and more. I’ve also been influenced by many luminaries, past and present, who’ve contributed their knowledge and inspiration through literature (that’s a future blog post).
The over 100 thousand wine enthusiasts I’ve met, face-to-face, to this point in my career in fine wine retail and hospitality, whether they’re consumers, clients or any of the people mentioned above, have shaped my knowledge and understanding.
My wife and many of our friends enjoy wine, wine country, wine culture and cuisine. They’re curious and they want a story. Lucky me.
