Discovery Wine Competition 2017
For many vintners, the berry harvest is in and the carboys are bubbling! For others, the grapes are just starting to swell and colour up! Last years’ vintage has aged well! You know that your home wines are the very best – better than those commercial bottles and kits!
Is your Huckleberry or Salmonberry really the best aged in the Discovery Islands? What local wine, not made from fermented rice, will challenge excellent Sake? Maybe, you are new to home wine making and realize that there is a lot to learn, such as how much time you need from go from “must” to first glass. What equipment do you need? Would you like to present or to attend a “how to workshop” ?
18 Years ago, we did have a Local Wines Competition – fundraiser! Changes to the BC Liquor Regulations, now make home vintners bubbling ideas legal! Are you up the challenge of just who garners the Peoples’ Choice Award for the best Country Wine / Grape Wine? Will it be the same as the judges Best in Class choice?
I need help in organizing a Discovery Islands Vintner’s Club and in 2017 holding a Vintner’s Competition. You must be 18 years of age or older! Please contact:
