BC Wine Appreciation SocietyNewsflash #1

BC Syrahs take the top four spots in Wine Access Canadian wine awards!

Newsflash #2

We are bringing all four of these wines, plus five more stunning BC Syrahs, plus three international Syrahs to you to taste for our first event of 2013, on January 14th.

Newsflash #3

This amazing tasting will be hosted by our very own Past President Tim Ellison – so you don’t want to miss it. The burning question on everyone’s mind – just which of his pairs of socks matches the Syrah? Join us in January to find out!

We have not done a varietal tasting for a few years, so when we heard that BC Syrahs were the top wines in the country, we decided that now was the time! This is your chance to taste 12 of the best Syrahs, and just to make it fun, we’re going to do it blind, and make you pick your top three. We’ll rate them, reveal them, and the wineries are already waiting to see how they’ll do!
