Well all, just a moment to toot my own horn~! I've been lucky enough to be able to start my own wine tastings in the beautiful Moda Hotel downtown, in the private dining salon of Uva winebar/Cibo restaurant (www.uvawinebar.ca).

Wine Tasting Circle
A series of wine tastings featuring rare vintages
and unique wines to the BC marketplace.
These tastings are designed for professional wine stewards/sommeliers, wine-merchants, writers as well as the serious amateur. Involving food components rather then full dishes, this is designed to allow participants to evolve their understanding of how flavors will affect, marry and contrast with each other.
Held in the private dining salon of Cibo/Uva @ the Moda Hotel (900 Seymour st) @ 7pm the first Wednesday of each month, participation is limited to 12 people. Payment can be made through the Paypal link @ www.TheChefandTheGrape.com
