Let It Snow!
In the spirit of the season, we invite you warm up with this winter/holiday issue complete with inspirations for any gathering.
In this issue, we feature the sparkling wine (Champagne) of France, the theme country of the 2014 Vancouver International Wine Festival. Barbara Philip, Portfolio Manager for European Wines at BC Liquor Stores, shares with us her Master of Wine knowledge on the bubbly drink and selects a few that she recommends for the holiday.
Learn the history, mystery and flavours of cognac, how Merlot is making a smooth comeback, and the best grapes of BC. Plus get some great winter wine tips on pairing seasonal food and wine from James Nevison, co-founder of HALFAGLASS, and wine columnist for the Vancouver Province.
It's really holiday celebration in this issue — find more than 50 new recipes for everything from fudge (makes great gifts) to cooking with chai, and cocktails for holiday home entertaining (shared by our Bar Star, Trevor Kallies of Donnelly Group's The Blackbird Public House & Oyster Bar).
Season's Greetings! Have a safe and happy holiday from BC Liquor Stores!
