All Canadians

May 18, 2009

Last Thursday was the All Canadian Wine Awards Gala at Caboto Club. If you didn't know, this event allows the public to drink the leftovers from the competition. Proceeds go to the hospital fund, kinda like the wine auction in Burgundy.

Our local wines were well represented and did pull off a few medals. I see that Aleksander had their win for their Baco posted almost immediately on their sign. 

It is also the only local chance to drink wines from BC and other areas of Canada. The Pinots From BC were wonderful. At one station a “friend of mine” managed to taste a flight of Pinots including a local favourite. It was interesting to see how the local held up and was better than all except the Church and State Pinot which was simply outstanding. How much was it??? I don't know. Did it wine an award??? Again I don't know. The results are not posted yet on the website and I just didn't have the patience to follow the screen which had a slide show of the winners.

We had a great time and I suggest that all go next year.
