#WineWednesday review by Sam Hauck aka the Wine Teacher featuring British Columbia wines.

Wine Tasting with the BC Wine Appreciation Society

What you may ask is the BCWAS? Established in 2005, British Columbia Wine Appreciation Society is a not-for-profit organization showcasing the wines of British Columbia through monthly tasting events.  Our events range from informal walk-around tastings to formal tastings with the winemakers and/or winery principals. Attendees enjoy tasting, learning and discussing wine in a relaxed atmosphere.  ​

Tasting Ten January 2019 – a flight of Cabernet Franc

Our tastings are always done blind (bottles wrapped in brown paper bags).  All we knew was that founding member Wayne Meadows, organized a flight of Cabernet Franc from BC, Washington and France and that the wines were from vintages 2009 – 2012.
