Best BC Somm and Wine Shop Purchaser take Kelowna! – Tasting Games!

The Tasting Games North Okanagan division event in Kelowna was our biggest, baddest event so far! On stage, the hilarious Howard Soon – decked out in a Kelowna Rockets jersey and repping the valley – took on the esteemed wine educator DJ Kearney and the laid back Vancouver sommelier Matthew Landry.

The excitement builds as Tasting Games heads to the second round…
