Canada Day Virtual Wine Tasting

Canada Day Virtual Wine Tasting

This year we are delighted to mix things up with a unique East Coast vs. West Coast wine pack. We have sourced a Bordeaux red wine from the diverse province of British Columbia, and a classic Rose from third generation Italian winemakers from the Niagara Peninsula.

Included in your $65 wine package:

1.5 hrs wine tasting experience co-hosted by our Board Chair, Sarah Price and VJ Gandhi, Founder of Kascadia Wine Merchants. VJ is also a proud Canadian citizen living in San Jose, with epicurean taste and unafraid to take risks to pursue her deepest passions!

 

Pondview Estate Winery - 2018 Cabernet Franc Rosé (Quantity: 1) 

This dry rosé is crafted from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes. It is layered with strawberry, watermelon, red grapefruit and roses, and pairs well with a strawberry spinach salad or grilled salmon. Alcohol: 12%, Region: Niagara Peninsula

Nestled amongst the sprawling vineyards of the prestigious Four Mile Creek sub-appellation in the heart of Niagara Wine Country, PondView Estate Winery sits on a 50 acre grape farm that has been tended to by the Puglisi family since 1974. 

 

Clos Du Soleil - 2018 Celestiale Red Blend (Quantity: 1)

Célestiale is Clos du Soleil’s Bordeaux blend that is soft and full of fruit with a classic and elegant structure.  44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 8% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot . The taster is greeted with aromas of cedar and raspberry compote with darker notes of blackberries, pencil lead and rich earth. On the palate the wine is soft and layered, dominated by fresh ripe fruit flavors of raspberry, blackberry, and pomegranate, with more subtle notes of forest undergrowth and grilled meat. This wine is soft, approachable, and totally food-friendly, yet retains all of the complexity and depth to truly engage the taster. Alcohol: 14.5%, Region: Similkameen Valley, BC.

Clos du Soleil is an artisan winery with estate vineyards, in the Similkameen Valley in southern British Columbia, Canada, producing wines which are elegant, complex, and age-worthy. Clos du Soleil's vineyards are primarily located on the upper bench of the southern Similkameen Valley, which has an arid, hot, desert-like climate, with rocky, mineral-rich soils that produce truly distinctive wines of ripe fruit character, fresh acidity, herbal notes and striking minerality.

 

Note: shipping is included but taxes will be added on at the checkout.

Please order before Wednesday, June 16. Spots are limited.

RSVP here.

Virtual Commemoration Day

Virtual Commemoration Day

Join Royal Canadian Legion Branch 25 (representing the San Francisco Bay area) along with the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps – Arkansas Division, as they present a virtual Commemoration Day service.

MORE

While July 1st is Canada Day, for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians it is also Memorial Day or Commemoration Day – a day when we remember the tragic events of the Battle of Beaumont Hamel. 

The first of July 1916 was the opening day of the Battle of the Somme, when 806 members of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment climbed out of their trenches and went “over the top” at 8:45am as part of the battle of Beaumont-Hamel. In less than an hour, the regiment was devastated, most killed or wounded within the first 20 minutes of the battle. The next morning, only 68 soldiers answered the roll call.

Commemoration Day was established in 1917, just one year later.

RSVP here to participate in our online service.
