Time Estate Winery Come try some wines from the latest and greatest collaboration between Harry McWatters, Bob Wareham and Richard 'Dick' Cleave. Tasting from 2pm to 5pm.

Saturday, October 18, 2014
Bench 1775 One of our favourite wineries from Penticton, Bench 1775, will be in to pour us their latest vintages. I used to think their name was a reference to the American invasion of Canada of 1775, wherein the revolting Americans took out their frustration towards the Crown by attacking and losing to their northern neighbours. Turns out 1775 is just the address of their winery. Come taste their wines 2pm-5pm.

Saturday, October 25, 2014
Mission Hill Mission Hill was the best show Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein made after they left The Simpsons. Sadly, it only ran for one season. Mission Hill is also a winery in British Columbia, apparently. It has run for many seasons. Come taste some of their wines from 2pm to 5 pm.

Saturday, November 1, 2014
I Get Knocked Down During today's tasting, the store's stereo will mysteriously "break down" forcing us to play "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba on repeat while we taste wines that are good for pain-management (I.E. literally any wine). Join us 2pm-5pm.

Saturday, November 8, 2014
St Hubertus & Oak Bay Family Estate Winery Crowd-favourite-wine-rep Raymond will be in to pour a selection from the St Hubertus and Oak Bay Family Estate wineries from 2pm until 5pm.

Saturday, November 15, 2014
Quinta Ferreira Quinta is from the Latin word for five, Quintus. Ferreira is a family of hard working individuals who make wine along the Black Sage road in Oliver. They're five of them. At least one will be here to pour some wine from 2pm until 5pm.

Saturday, November 22, 2014
Fort Berens Estate Winery A winery from Lillooet? That's weird. Lillooet, the word, is also weird. Rhymes with poet. There are no other words that rhyme with poet. Isn't that ironic? Sure you could look it up but you should probably just believe me. You should also taste these wines from Lillooet from 2pm to 5pm.


The following events will be taking place at Village VQA Wines located at 3536 W. 41st Ave. (at Dunbar) from 3:00-5:30pm unless otherwise noted.
