Tasting Room Radio: 18th March
0 0

As soon as I got the invite from Ron Bogdonov GM at Unsworth Vineyards in the Cowichan Valley Vancouver Island I knew it was just too good to pass up.

Chris Turyk, son of owner Tim Turyk and a seriously good wine guy who worked  at Hawksworth!

Chris invited his Sommelier friends in Vancouver and they all agreed to fly over on three planes to spend the day touring the cellars at Unsworth and then finishing with food and wine pairings  in their wonderful dining room.

Over 30 in total..all with sharp minds and even sharper tongues.

I recorded the highlights of the tour to start the show  - so you get to take it as well.

Between the time the lunch ended and the buses left  for the return flight I started asking questions of them – 3 at a time.

Below are the really fun results.  We’re talking Unsworth, Cowichan, Trends, 2017 etc.
