Join us for a unique tasting with Derek Uhlemann, Farm Chef at Covert Farms Family Estate Winery ! ***SOLD OUT***
“Farm Chef” – now that’s a cool job title! And Derek has some great stuff to work with at Covert Farms.
All the produce – including the over 40 different kinds of crops and the wine grapes – is organic. If you visit during the summer or fall, you will find yourself bringing home not just wine but tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, beets, corn, peppers, onions, melons … whatever is in season. Oh – they also have bacon!
We are very pleased to welcome Derek to visit us here in Vancouver! He’ll be able to tell you all about the great line-up of wines he’s bringing with him, and you’ll be able to buy some, too.
Wines being poured include:
2015 Sparkling Zinfandel
2014 Sauvignon Blanc Sémillon
Vertical of Amicitia White (Roussanne, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon) - 2008, 2012, 2013, 2014
2014 Rosé (Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah)
2013 Amicitia Red (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot)
2013 MDC (Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah)
2013 Zinfandel Grand Reserve Barrel Sample
2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve Barrel Sample

And because we know how much you love your wine and food pairings, we’re also going to have a few appies on hand!

I am very pleased to have been part of BCWAS almost right from the beginning – my first event was BCWAS’s third tasting, and I’ve been involved ever since! I am thrilled with all the support that we have from all of the wonderful owners and winemakers in our beautiful province, and of course, BCWAS couldn’t exist without you. Cheers, and see you at the next tasting!
