Wow, a whole year has just zipped by. I was really busy tasting lots of wines at all the fantastic venues here in Vancouver, as well as across the border at the Taste of Tulalip (which you should sign up to attend next year. It’s excellent). Thanks to WordPress for compiling my stats and letting me, and you, know these were my top 5 blog posts. Which do you think? The answers are below!
- 1 Chinese New Year, the Year of Golden Rabbit. Wine to serve?
- 2 Have You Tasted Spicebox Canadian Whiskey?
- 3 Have You Been to Lulu Island Winery? @LuluIslandWine
- 4 Caviar and Champagne for New Years Eve?
- 5 Where is Rioja and What Wines Can I Taste?
I knew my Chinese New Year post was super popular as I watched my stats leading up to Chinese New Year hit the roof. Stay tuned for my wine selection for the upcoming Chinese New Year.
My #2 post really caught me off guard. But I’m pleasantly surprised. Spicebox is an easy to drink whiskey, on the ice, or mixed in a drink. Check out the post.
For #3, I was happy to see Lulu Island Winery, a local winery, located in Richmond, BC. They produce both grape-based and other fruit-based wines. They also produce a selection of ice wine, so drop by one weekend to Lulu Island Winery if you live in the Vancouver Lower Mainland.
#4 should be hot right now too, seeing that it is New Years Eve. I hope I helped many people figure out which caviar and Champagne they would like to nibble and toast with the family and friends. Wine is a social drink.
And last, but not least #5, about the Rioja region of Spain. This article came out before the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival. Spain was the Theme Country this year, and I think the Vancouver readership had a thirst for knowledge about this region and what to expect at the Festival. Stay tuned for my articles on Chile, as they are the next Theme Country for the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival next year.
Cheers and Happy New Year!
