“We have over 12 winery representatives with wine from regions all over the world and this year 4 craft beer tasting tables,” said Theresa Marson, one of the coordinators of the event. “The wine tasting is complemented by a special selection of cheeses, cold cuts, breads, fruit dishes, spreads etc. all generously provided by our sponsors. In addition, the ticket price also includes attendance at wine pairing “Winespeak” seminars, samplings of specialty wines, door prize and a silent auction and – of course! – free taxi service home within the Campbell River area after the event.
And not to be missed!
