I recently attended Taste BC 2011, a fundraiser put on by Liberty Wine Merchants with proceeds going to BC Children’s Hospital – Oak Tree Clinic. The event held at the Hyatt gave my friends and I a chance to walk about the large room and taste wines, ciders and beers from fine producers from around BC. I was able to chat with many of the producers to find out which products were new or how they were made and where they were available.
For Wine, loved the Rustic Roots fruit wines, Painted Rock wines, Laughing Stock wines, and the Kettle Valley ‘Starboard’ dessert wine. The best food booth was Bentons Cheese who offered up samples of many different cheeses that paired well with the wines.
