VinoCamp and CheeseCamp Vancouver

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Last year’s inaugural VinoCamp Vancouver was such a success that it’s back again this August. As a special treat, the world’s first-ever CheeseCamp will compliment VinoCamp as well.

“A different type of conference, VinoCamp CheeseCamp 2009 is designed for people interested in technology, wine and cheese as participants are encouraged to take photos of what’s happening, to blog, tweet and message their experiences.”

Where: Grad Student Society Centre (Thea Koerner House), UBC
When: August 8th, 2009 from 12:00pm – 6:00pm
Register: Online

There will be sessions about both wine and cheese, with speakers for each category as well. The lineup currently consists of the following:

12:30pm – 1:10pm
Keynote: The Wine Soaked Landscape: a global perspective on why we love wine country by Dr. Donna Senese, UBC Okanagan

1:30pm – 2:10pm
Old versus Young by Sid Cross & Daenna van Mulligan

2:30pm – 3:10pm
Cool, Single & Sustainable by Mark Davidson & Ingo Grady

3:30pm – 4:10pm
The Glass as a Messenger by David Sanders of Riedel

4:30pm – 5:10pm
Romancing the Vine: The trials and tribulations in owning a boutique winery by Patrick Murphy of Vista D’Oro, Mike Raffan of Township 7, and Kirby Froese of Dunham & Froese

CheeseCamp (mostly TBD)
4:30pm – 5:10pm
Pondering Wine and Cheese Pairing by Anthony Nicalo and Sebastien LeGoff. Are wines and cheeses made with a particular philosophy a better pairing than those with divergent interests?

If you are in either of these industries, are a hobbyist, or simple appreciate the delicious subject-matter, VinoCamp and CheeseCamp Vancouver are for you. You can follow @vinocampvan on Twitter for updates, news, and information.

    The hyperlink to register comes up with a 404 Gateway Error 🙁

    I signed up early for Vinocamp again this year because I had such a great time last year, but was sad to hear the recent announcement about the venue change, and that lunch was not being provided. The lovely setting and catering really helped make last year’s event a success.

    Sid Cross & Daenna Van Mulligen – That alone is worth attending! Should be fun 🙂

    Not to worry Karen – CheeseCamp is now also a big part of VinoCamp – there will be plenty of wonderful food provided by sponsors and some fabulous cheese makers and suppliers! Some of the sessions have some great pairings as well. And very much agreed on your sentiment Karmen – there are a lot of reasons why it’ll be a hit!
