Time to Discover the Wines of Argentina

With the fall and winter coming up, our thoughts start moving toward heartier foods and full-bodied red wines.  Coming up on September29 you will get a chance to try some big Malbecs, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere and more at the Discover Wines of Argentina tasting here in Vancouver.  If white wines are more your style, you will probably be delighted by Argentina’s signature white grape, Torrontes, or other great white wines, like Chardonnay produced from high-altitude Mendoza or Salta.  Below is the full tasting announcement. Get your tickets before they sell out!

About The BC Hospitality Foundation’s Tip Out To Help Campaign: 

October is Tip Out To Help Month:  B.C. Hospitality Foundation is starting a fundraising program this October.  Called Tip Out To Help, the program encourages members of the hospitality industry to raise funds however they please and donate them to BCHF to help their colleagues in need.  Some examples of easy fundraising ideas are staff donating a toonie per shift, management donating a percentage of sales, and/or team fundraisers.  Every toonie helps. We hope you’ll join the movement and register a team at www.tipouttohelp.com
