New Finds -Discover what local sommeliers are drinking today

Presented by: Various sommeliers

Hear from and taste with four of Vancouver Island's top wine experts in this fun and insightful seminar. A panel of wine professionals (media, vintner, sales, education) will share two wines that excite them, and why they think YOU will love them as much as they do. At the end of the tasting session, the crowd picks which wine was the favourite. Sponsored by Vessel Liquor and moderated by wine educator and EAT Magazine contributor Sharon McLean, this seminar will show you what wine experts love about wine, what's in their glass, and what they recommend you pour into yours.
