I adore every single aspect of wine. I am sure you know this by now! And, I am a massive fan of our British Columbian wine industry. Besides enjoying the fascinating styles and exploring the B.C. wine regions, I love sharing my knowledge and passion for my favourite topic with people who want to sip, savour and learn.
Whistler’s Cornucopia is almost underway and starts next weekend! The entertaining food and drink festival turns 25 years young, and I am thrilled to be there in person and help celebrate.
And, celebrate I will, during the TIME Family of Wines portfolio tasting on Saturday, November 6th at 1:45 PM, alongside TIME’s General Manager (and good friend) Christa-Lee McWatters.
One of the most notable names in British Columbia’s wine history is none other than Harry McWatters. McWatters created more than 50 vintages in the Okanagan before his passing in 2019. TIME Family of Wines new owners, the Mayerts, ensure the continuity of what the McWatters family has established and build from there with the next generation: Christa-Lee McWatters as general manager and sister Darrien McWatters as operations manager.
Christa-Lee and I will showcase their delicious wines from all four labels, including the new, premium quality label, ‘Chronos.’
Here is the lineup of wines for the TIME Family of Wines tasting:
- Evolve Cellars Pink Effervescence
- 2020 Evolve Cellars Spontaneity
