Intro To Wine Tasting At Everything Wine June 28, 2018

25 Jun

IntroToWineTastingHave you checked out the still relatively new Everything Wine store in SE Vancouver?  If you haven’t, you are missing out.  Everyone we’ve introduced the store to gets excited.  It’s unique in that, unlike its other stores, this Everything Wine location carries more than wine.  It’s quite a large store that carries beer, wine and spirits and yes, has a cooler section for those hot days. They also have a selection of rotating wines at their Tasting Bar which is open every day from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. All the staff we’ve encountered are very knowledgeable which leads us to their upcoming Intro To Wine Tasting happening this Thursday, June 28th.  We recently attended a Sparkling Wine Workshop taught by Kris Pazma.  We have to say it was fun, educational and delish.  Kris is hosting another class this Thursday at the Vancouver location from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.  In this workshop Intro to Wine Tasting, Kris will help you how to describe the aromas of the grapes you like so when you go into a liquor store to buy wine, you will leave with something you’ll definitely like. Cost of the workshop is $25.00. To register, call 604.416.1672 to reserve your spot.  Last we heard, there were only a few spots left.
