Wine Prepares to Go Local

The Vancouver International Wine Festival has come and gone, with French producers putting on a reasoned and informative display of why terroir matters at the 42nd wine show. The coronavirus was the talk of the show as international travel and wine shows have come to a halt across Asia and Europe and will no doubt do the same in North America. As the wine world begins to prepare for an extended period of staying at home, we offer you daily updated tasting notes, more videos, and food ideas to keep you going until you can get back to wine country. Allison Spurrell, our resident cheese expert, has given us yet another reason to buy cheese this month with a story on Delice de Bourgogne. You can catch all our French short films on our YouTube channel.  If you have not yet signed up for our newsletter, please do, so you don’t miss another edition. ag

Delice de Bourgogne

Delice de Bourgogne
