We're releasing a special Monday Top 10 in honour of the 41st Vancouver winefest.
The Vancouver International Wine Festival officially launched last weekend with the extravagant Bacchanalia Gala Dinner + Auction. As you've probably noticed, we've been tasting and posting dozens of California wines over the past few months, covering a selection of wines and wineries present at the 41st annual VIWF, as well as dozens of other California wines.
Today the festival is in full swing, popping the cork on 53 events, 160 wineries, 16 countries, 1,425 wines and 25,000 participants. Anthony's schedule is packed this week, always one of his busiest of the year. You will find him moderating Next World Chardonnay, Napa Valley Cab 2005-2014, Growing Forward in California, and What's Cool in Sonoma, as well as broadcasting for BNN Bloomberg 1410 from the International Tasting Room Floor. Keep an eye on our instagram page for our festival highlights throughout the week.
In honour of festival week, and our neighbours to the south, here are ten recently tasted, diverse and drinkable wines from California we highly recommend seeking out anytime of the year. See you at VIWF.
