Please join us for the biggest event of our history:

our 10th Anniversary Gala celebration!

Wow, do we have an amazing tasting event put together for you! We’ll be high above the city overlooking the water and mountains in the beautiful Diamond Ballroom. While you walk around and admire the view, you can sip the delightful wines of over 35 wonderful BC wineries, savour some delicious cheeses, and socialize with lots of your fellow BCWAS members.

For those of you who attended the recent Vancouver International Wine Festival, we’d like to point out that we will have even more BC wineries than they did – our BC winery friends know just how special you are!

  • Bench 1775
  • Black Hills
  • Blue Mountain
  • Burrowing Owl
  • Church & State

Plus some more that we’re still confirming – we’ll update you as we hear back. We hope that you’ll enjoy some old favourites and discover some new favourites, too!

And…just because we’re so excited about all these great wines, we’re going to make it really easy for you to buy someYou can buy as few as 3 bottles from any winery – no need to order a whole case, although certainly you can if you find something you just have to have. Sign up on the order sheets that will be at each table. Once you’ve paid the wineries, they’ll send one big order to us, and we’ll sort it out and get it to you. A great and easy way to get a start on your summer sipping!

To make it even better – tickets for this fabulous event are only $49, so you can bring your friends along too for the same great price!

This year, we are pouring 12 wonderful Pinot Noirs, and asking you to pick your favourite. To add some fun, 9 will be from BC and 3 will be international. Don’t worry – we aren’t asking you to figure out which is which, just which ones you like the best. At the end of the evening, all will be revealed!  This tasting will be at our new venue, De Dutch Pannekoek House, located in the Vancouver Convention Centre – a lovely bright room, with a stunning water and mountain view.
