March 20, 2013: Live Tweet Tasting a BCWine

HERE’S HOW THE CHAT WENT:

Live Tweet Tasting a BC Wine

Tonight is a repeat of a chat we did last year and it was so successful we’d like to do it again.  Just got to a store, or to your cellar (or closet), choose a BCWine  and open it up from 8-9pm on Wednesday March 20.

Tweet your experience.  Review it or pair it with food, discuss it’s flavours and aromas, why you chose it, the label, the winery’s story, how you go the bottle–whatever.

You’re going to love this BCWineChat!

March 13, 2013: Economic Impact of Canadian Wine Industry

HERE’S HOW THE CHAT WENT:

Economic Impact of Canadian Wine Industry

A new Economic Impact study on the Canadian Grape and Wine Industry has been made public this week and we will discuss its findings and implications for our national industry and our local BC wine industry as well.

You do not have to read this study (it is 37 pages long).  There will be a few of us on the chat who have read it and can hopefully field questions.  More importantly is that we start a discussion, a conversation about our BC wine industry and its importance to our province and country.

March 6, 2013: BC Wine and Oysters

HERE’S HOW THE CHAT WENT: 

BC Wine and Oysters

What could be finer than a crisp, refreshing BC white wine with beautiful fresh BC oysters?  This week we talk about this pairing–what works and what doesn’t.  We will have on some oyster experts as well so get ready to learn and ask and participate!

As will be mentioned on the chat, Osoyoos will hold its 2nd Annual Oliver Osoyoos Oyster Festival from April 17-21, 2013.

Febraury 27, 2013: Red Wine With Fish

HERE’S HOW THE CHAT WENT:

Red Wine with Fish  

Join us for a great chat on food and wine pairing.  We will be talking about uncommon pairings (hence the name “Red Wine with Fish”).  There are no rules to food and wine pairing…but there may be some helpful guidelines to be had.

For an added bonus, this will be our first In Real Life (IRL) #BCWineChat tweet- up as well!  A group of tweeters who love BC food and wine will be live at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver tweeting up a storm of food comments from Chef Ned Bell and wines from some BC Wineries.

Join the group!  Ask lots of questions and don’t be intimidated!
