Virtual BC Wine Tastings this week!

One of my favourite things to do on any given weekend is visit and tour our local BC Wineries. There is nothing better than walking into a tasting room, standing at a tasting bar and  swirling/sipping on new releases in wine country…

Even though you can’t physically visit a winery due to COVID-19, you can still join them virtually for a tasting! That’s right. Grab a glass of wine and watch a live tasting from your living room with wine experts from across the province! Below is a list of live wine tastings for the week of April 20th. I will update this list every week so you can join in on the fun!
