The largest tour of California wine comes to Vancouver this month, with the Arts Club’s California Wine Fair. In partnership with the Wine Institute of California, this fundraiser offers the opportunity to taste over 350 wines from 100 California wineries.
The Arts Club’s California Wine Fair
Presented by BFL Insurance in partnership with the Wine Institute of California
Where: Vancouver Convention Centre East Building Ballrooms A & B.
When: Monday, April 25, 2016 from 7:00pm to 9:30pm
Tickets: Tickets are on sale now for $90, or $75 for groups of 10+.
Wineries like Meiomi Estate, Signorello Estate, and Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars will pour their signature selections exclusive to this event. Santa Barbara County’s Meiomi includes three vineyards renowned for their unique pinot noir and chardonnay. Signorello Estate’s unique Napa Valley hillside terrain, with its varied soil and sun exposures, shapes the dynamic body of their cabernet sauvignon and chardonnays.
California Wine Fair attendees have the rare opportunity to taste notes of scorched earth, new saddle leather, and crushed rock layered into wines from this progressive estate regarded for their sustainable farming practices. Pioneer grape-grower Nathan Fay made Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars synonymous with cabernet sauvignon; planting the first cabernet sauvignon in the Stag’s Leap District and winning first place in the Cabernet Sauvignon category at the Judgment of Paris.
Rounding out the rich array of 400 premium wines is an extensive silent auction featuring premium California wines, luxury goods, and entertainment and travel packages.
As the Arts Club’s signature spring fundraiser, all proceeds from event ticket sales and auction packages go toward the development of new Canadian plays and staging world-class theatre created by Vancouver artists. Follow the Arts Club on Twitter and Facebook for more information.
