Martin’s Lane Virtual Wine Experience | Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

This is the first of two foresightful three-part opportunities to experience the nuances of fine wine in the comfort of your own home. Or, if you wish you can enjoy this experience in the luxury of the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. This first in a series of two three-part virtual experiences features Martin’s Lane Winery.

A three part series of weekly expressions of the intricacies of the wines of Martin’s Lane. In order of presentation; Single Vine Approach, On the Edge, and World Class Wines.

The series is hosted by Certified Sommelier, Andrew Cornell of the Iconic Wineries of British Columbia.

The architecturally stunning 100% “gravity-flow” winery is the most ambitious project to date for proprietor Anthony von Mandl and acclaimed American architect Tom Kundig. Carved into a steep hillside, the building is an expression of the raw, exposed environment. It is here where scarce quantities of world-class Pinot Noir and Riesling are produced that are drawing the attention of wine enthusiasts worldwide.
