Event Details

Want to try out a variety of delicious fortified wines at a never offered before (anywhere), all at once and at a fraction of their cost?

Wine Adventures is offering a Fortified wines blind tasting and mingling. You can either bring a bottle of yours to share or pay for a ticket to cover a portion of the cost.

If you're bringing a bottle, please send us a note requesting an RSVP (send an email to gloriaATgloriachangDOTcom) with what you would like to bring.

Fortifieds:
Port (LBV, Quinta, Vintage, 10 yr Tawny, 20 yr Tawny, Colheita, Crusted)
Sherry (Blended, Dry Amontillado, Dry Oloroso, etc)
Vin Doux Naturel (Beaumes de Venise, Muscat de Saint-Jean-de-Minervois, Banyul (Grand Cru)
Madeira (Sercial, Verdelho, Boal, Malmsey)
Rutherglen Muscat

By evening's end, you'll have a nice overview of what fortified wines are and the differences between them as you sip your way to sweet (mostly, though some will be dry, off dry) bliss. Perfect for an Autumn Vancouver evening!

The tasting (sipping really) will take place in a cozy and casual Common Room (a pop up, of sorts) a short walk from the Commercial Skytrain and 99/9 Broadway bus. Exact address and directions will be sent out to those coming out for this delicious and fun eve! There are no refunds but you can give your spot to someone else if you can't make it if you give me their contact info. You're welcome to bring friends but don't worry about coming on your own if you haven't come out to a wine event before. You'll meet a bunch of nice folks.

Cheers!
