Wine Seminars at Vancouver Urban Winery Starting Sunday April 14th

10 Apr


Have you wanted to learn about wine and wine pairing in a fun, informative environment? If the answer is yes, you are in luck. Vancouver Urban Winery is offering their version of Sunday School. A series of four ‘informal and irreverent wine seminars’ which will be hosted by Sommeliers David Stansfield and Lisa Cook. Both sommeliers have extensive experience with wine. The aim of these seminars is to demystify wine and make it a fun and engaging evening for everyone.

There will be a series of 4 seminars starting this Sunday, April 14th. The initial seminar is titled #101 – A World Tour of Wine. The second seminar held on April 28th is titled #102 – BC vs. The World which will be an interactive evening with brown-bag, blind tasting. The third seminar being held on May 12th is #103 – Better Know A BC Winery – Joie Farms which will include back vintages and barrel samples presented by winemaker and owner, Heidi Noble.  And if you are going to know a BC winery, this is one to know.  This award winning winery just cleaned up at the 2013  Great Northwest Wine Competition in Washington state where it was awarded thirteen medals. The last seminar in this series is being held on May 26th  is titled #104 – How To Buy Wine and Influence People. The view of this seminar is to assist people in deciphering wine labels and understanding wine scores.  All four seminars will be held at Vancouver Urban Winery, 55 Dunlevy Avenue. The cost is $35 per class or $120 for all 4 classes. Tickets can be purchased through the winery or by visiting  Classes run from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., but doors open at 6:00 p.m.  Everyone is encouraged to come early and meet their hosts and tour the winery. Cheers!
