Annual Gala Wine and Food Tasting

Friday, November 19th, is the date set for our Annual Gala Wine and Food Tasting. We shall be at the Varsity Community Association Centre again this year; however, this event is getting even bigger and better. This year we are going to experience a ‘sit down’ format, where we all will be at tables and tasting the wines right along with our presenter. We have engaged Dave Larocque again this year. He was very entertaining and did a fabulous job last year with rave reviews. We will also have food pairing samples to experience at the same time. We are really looking forward to this exciting new format so definitely put this date on your calendar and do not miss The Vineyard’s Premier Event of the year.

We expect to have tickets ($20 person) on sale at both locations starting October 15th.

The Vineyard Wine Guilds

The 2010/2011 seasons have begun for both of our wine making clubs. The North and South Guilds have had their first meetings of the year. We are looking forward to a great season with activities such as: wine sampling, wine judging, educational components, social interaction and more. The North Wine Guild meets on the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month and the South Wine Guild meets every 3rd Tuesday evening of each month.

The Web site

A lot of work has gone into keeping our web pages current and full of great information. For example we now have very comprehensive beer brewing information, including a ‘live’ list of liquid Wyeast strains in stock. Also some very important information and articles for wine makers including: ‘Why We Use Cultured Yeast’.  To help you remain up to date we have installed RSS feeds to the “Home” and “Event Calendar” pages. That means that if you subscribe to the RSS feeds you will be notified whenever new information is posted.

Do not forget that if you click on the tabs above in this newsletter you will taken directly to those pages on our Website. Only at The Vineyard. Visit us at
