California Wine Fair Tasting 2010

Chase Stampe & Laura Sousa of Bonterra Wines

Last night I attended a wine tasting that featured a large selection of wineries from all over California, featuring 350 wines from over 100 wineries.  This ballroom tasting along with a silent auction held at the Vancouver Convention Center is the annual fundraiser for the Arts Club Theatre Company that operates the Stanley Theatre as well as the Arts Club Theatre on Granville Island.
