Nothing helps you get into the holiday spirit faster than some holiday spirits, and our friends at West Coast Wine Education are holding an event that combines both. Their Holiday Wine and Cheese Tasting is happening on Thursday, December 15, 2011 from 7:00 – 9:00pm at the Port Moody Arts Centre [map].
Get ready for the holidays by joining them for a tasting of incredible holiday value wines! Participants will be sampling 16 wines from around the world all matched with gourmet cheeses, unique spreads, artisan breads and crackers. The event will not be a typical structured workshop, it is a stand up, salon-style, self-guided tasting. The room will feature four individual stations: one for sparkling wine, one for white wine, one for red wine, and one for dessert wine. Wine expert John Gerum will be on-site with his event team pouring the wines and discussing unique holiday food and wine matches.
All wines sampled are holiday value wines and can be purchased locally for less than $20 per bottle. So not only will they be the perfect complement to your holiday meal, they won’t give you sticker shock when you buy them.
Tickets are only $35 + HST per person, and can be purchased directly through West Coast Wine Education. Buy tickets here. Please note that tickets will not be available through the Port Moody Arts Centre for this tasting.
This salon sold out last year as it’s an intimate tasting of less than 40 guests. In fact, as of December 6, there were only 18 spots left. So don’t delay – book your spot today so that you don’t miss out.
