Eight B.C. VQA wines are now available exclusively at Whole Foods Market stores in Washington and Oregon, and we were invited to taste them at a special dinner last week at Dahlia Lounge.
Chef Brock Johnson and B.C. Chef Trevor Bird of Fable Restaurant in Vancouver (and Top Chef Canada) created west coast cuisine perfectly paired with the eight featured B.C. wines.
Coincidentally, this amazing evening came on the heels of a trip we took to parts of BC wine country in mid-September.
We will be writing in detail about both of those events in the future. In the meantime, we wanted to share the names of the wineries where we tasted some pretty good B.C. wine. I was born and raised in B.C., and I can truly say, “B.C. wine, you’ve come a long way, baby!”
Wines from these participating wineries are now available at Whole Foods:
- Tinhorn Creek Vineyards
- Nk’Mip Cellars
- Tantalus Vineyards
- St. Hubertus Estate Winery
- Meyer Family Vineyards
- Quails’ Gate Estate Winery
- Black Hills Estate Winery
- Burrowing Owl Estate Winery
Additional BC wineries we visited in Osoyoos and Kelowna:
- Fairview Cellars
- Gehringer Brothers
- Hester Creek
Stay tuned for more details in future blog posts. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit Beautiful British Columbia and its growing wine country.
