Join us for our annual December Party event! It’s become a tradition now – we pull some cool wines from the cellar, and you come out and drink them! This year, we’ll be at the Chali-Rosso Art Gallery on Howe Street.
If you haven’t been to the Chali-Rosso, your eyes are in for a treat. This is a real art gallery with real fine art – pieces by Dali and Chagall, just to name two. And they let us in there with red wine!
As is the custom with our December event, this one will be a party! You can walk around and taste delicious wines, nibble on a selection of cheeses and charcuterie from our friends at Les Amis du Fromage, have a chat with your fellow BCWAS members, and get a little culture, as well.
The gallery has a great location, too – about a block and a half from both Burrard and Granville stations - and there are three buses that stop only two doors away, so it’s super-easy to get to, and we’ll give you a transit ticket to get home for free!
You all know we’ve been stashing some great wines in the BCWAS cellar, and for this event, we’re pulling some of them out! Come along and try these gems:
Maverick 2014 "Ella" Sparkling
Gehringer Brothers 2016 Pinot Auxerrois
