It was windy and wonderful. The invite was from The Mark Anthony Group, who distribute beautifully chosen wines to this part of the World. Would I be interested in interviewing some of their top winemakers from around the World..on the top of the Telus Building on Georgia? Yes Please. If you’re seeking new fresh wines and winemakers here’s some top level suggestions..
Dlynn Proctor – Winemaking Ambassador – Penfolds ( Australia )
Darryl Brooker – Winemaker – Mission Hill Family Estate. (BC)
David Adelsheim – Founder and Director – Adelsheim. Willamette Valley, (Oregon)
Thibault Brotte – Export manager – Maison Brotte (France)
Vincent Thebaud – Export Director – – Brumont (France)
Rachael Watson – Canada Manager – Henkell Co. (Germany)
Johannes Hasslebach – Winemaker – Gunderloch (Germany)
We had time to taste and talk about their wines..what were they pouring and why? Whats available in BC and what are the price points. Several of these guests were missing harvest back home and couldn’t wait to get back but they had a story to tell. About their wines and their home. This was such fun. Touring the Wine World 23 floors up. Did I mention it was Windy??
Thank You Aimee Williams
