On Thursday October 29th I had the pleasure to go ‘Undercover’ at one of the most secretave wine events of the season. Hosted by the Raymond James Lionsgate Financial to benefit Shooting Stars Foundation in support of direct service local HIV/AIDS oraganizations.
All the wines were served blind and each bottle was numbered, guests samples the different wines and noted their favourites. Each of the wines was under $19.95 a bottle. During the last half hour the bags were removed and revealed.
Some of my favourite wines that I tasted when undercover include the above three #88 Oak Bay, Gamay Noir 2007; #55 Lake Breeze, Pinot Gris VQA 2008; and #66 Thornhaven Estates Reserve Pinot Noir VQA 2007.
