Hour Two of 2018 VanWineFest
Last week’s show focused of Spain and Portugal.
This week its friends and neighbours.
BC, Washington, California, Nova Scotia and a final Spanish Winemaking Star Alvaro Palacios.
Loved doing this hour. Winemaking friends from all over sharing thoughts and opinions.
We talk about the Alberta Wine Ban and its effect.
I felt it was important that I ask the question “What are you pouring here today and why?”
Co-hosts were Sandra Oldfield and Daenna van Mulligen (The Wine Diva). They did a great job!
