This is always a fun event. California brings us big ripe fruit flavours, both for red and white wines. For those of you who keep thinking about heavy oak, that is a thing of the past. Many California wine makers use oak more delicately, or have unoaked versions of their wine. You may be thinking Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, which are the stars for California, but California Pinot Noir is quite nice too. And if you want a fun, jammy red wine, try a Zinfandel. Below is the info for the upcoming Art’s Club California Wine Fair. Get your tickets before it sells out!
Vancouver, B.C.—The Arts Club’s California Wine Fair returns this spring with two distinct events for wine devotees: the large-scale California Wine Fair Ballroom Tasting and the intimate California Winemakers Dinner. These social and informative evenings are designed for guests to explore the abundant range of styles and varietals created across the Golden State by its prolific vintners.

The evening also includes an extensive silent auction featuring luxury travel, entertainment and cultural packages, and exclusive wine lots.
