 mywinepal  November 22, 2021

I do make video interviews with winery principals during the Vancouver International Wine Festival and at other events.  I put the videos on youtube, but have not used youtube for a while; since COVID closed down Festivals.  I thought I would put the link here to my youtube feed in case you would like to be entertained by winemakers that…

Bench 1775 Winery, located on the Naramata Bench north of Penticton, had GM and winemaker Val Tait, join in the winter of 2012.  Her goal is to make pure, varietal-specific wines that reflect the planted clone varieties, the vineyard sites, and the microclimates of the fruit’s origin.   Val has a great resume, making wines at Poplar Grove, Painted Rock, and…


Game Changers – 360 Degree Photo Spheres and Videos

 mywinepal  June 13, 2017

Technology progresses and enables us to do things we only dreamed was possible.  For me, one thing I would like people to experience is what does it look and sound like to be in the middle of a wine tasting event.  I can now do this thanks to 360-degree photo spheres and 360-degree videos. I recently attended the “Taste Valpolicella…

VanWineFest 2017 – It’s a Wrap. All My Posts for You.

 mywinepal  March 26, 2017

Canada should be proud of its recent wine history.  We started getting serious about vitis vinifera in the 1970s.  BC and Ontario started growing wine grapes and producing wines.  Nova Scotia and Quebec have followed, and I heard, but have not seen, that there are also wines being produced in New Brunswick.  Our climate since the 1970s has warmed up…

Freixenet and Cava in Spain – My Youtube Video Series

 mywinepal  August 12, 2014

Champagne. Cava.  What’s the difference or similarity?  There are both.  As you know, Champagne is sparking wine produced in the Champagne region of France, made in the Champenoise Traditional Method (with the second fermentation in the bottle), and Cava is sparkling wine produced primarily in the Penedes region of Spain, made in the Champenoise Traditional Method as well. The main difference…

The Taste of Tulalip Grand Taste 2012 with Wine and Beer

 mywinepal  November 24, 2012

The big event IMHO for the Taste of Tulalip is the “Grand Taste“.  Big it is, with a tasting room featuring wines from 75 Washington State wineries, as well as additional wineries from California, Oregon, Italy, and France.  I did not do a final count, but I would guess there were about 150 wineries present at the Grand Taste.  With…
