California Crush Event

"California vines come alive during this dynamic, walk-around event that pays tribute to the Golden State's most delicious and exciting wines. It's a cool, stylish evening of great wine and food, music and entertainment, while socializing with fun people who love California."

The event featured wines of all varietys and price points for California wine lovers to enjoy. Dj's and entertainment filled the night as wine enthusiasts enjoyed the beautufl backdrop of The Waterview Vancouver. Appetizers were served throughout the night, with fantatic options for vegetarians as well. A great atmosphere and great wines made for a great evening out

Some of our favourites from the tasting event are highlighted below:

For the wine collector, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars; Artemis Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, and Karia Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016 were definitely top notch additions to try.

Chardonnays were great finds for the event. From crisp clean coastal, to buttery oaked and traditional there was one for everyone's pallet. Favorites from our team include Oak Ridge Winery -Old Soul Chardonnay 2017, and Wente Vineyards -Riva Ranch Single Vineyard (Monterey) Chardonnay 2016.

Best white of the night went to Joel Gott Wines -Sauvignon Blanc 2017. An Amazing Sauvignon Blanc that is very well priced for the quality if you can find it.

For savvy shoppers that enjoy an easy drinking red with an interesting story behind it for your next wine party, Benziger Family Winery - Stave & Steel Cabernet Sauvignon NV is priced under $20.00 and bourbon barrels are used to age this wine.

Another fantastically priced and delicious wine Don Sebastiani & Sons -Smoking Loon Viongnier 2017 priced under $20.00 as well for another great find!
