Monte Creek Ranch – Sam Elliott Voice: Wine should be big. Bold. Powerful. Winery is just a fancy word for a ranch. Monte Creek know this, and that's why they ain't messing around with ostentatious nomenclature -- they're a ranch through and through. They're Monte Creek Ranch, bringing you wine the way it should be. Come feel the real from 2pm until 5pm.

Saturday, February 13, 2016
A Romantic Afternoon With Raymond Wong – When you say "romance" we say "Raymond Wong!" Come by Valentine's Day Eve and see one of our favourite wine reps, Raymond Wong, pour wines from Oak Bay and St. Hubertus vineyards! 2pm until 5pm.

Saturday, February 20, 2016
Culmina – Culmina is Latin for...something. I can't remember what it means exactly and there is literally no way I can find out what specific words of a dead language mean, so it'll remain a mystery until you come to taste the much lauded wines of Culmina Family Estate Winery from 2pm until 5pm.

Saturday, February 27, 2016
THE OSCARS – To celebrate the Academy Award Nominees, we'll be pouring a Pinot Gris, a Riesling, a Pinot Blanc, Sauv Blanc, and a bunch of other well-aged whites from 2pm until 5pm.

Saturday, March 5, 2016
What Are Little Girls Made Of? – Remember that episode of Star Trek where Nurse Chapel's long lost fiancιe makes an android-duplicate of Captain Kirk and so then there's a good Kirk and a bad Kirk? No, not the one where a transporter malfunction causes Captain Kirk to be split into two individuals, a good Kirk and a bad Kirk -- that's The Enemy Within. We'll be talking about What Are Little Girls Made Of? while sipping wine that pairs well with 60's popular sci-fi from 2pm until 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.

Saturday, January 30, 2016
New Vintages, Old Favourites – Welp, there's no way our tasting descriptions can compete with Kitsilano's, so we're not even going to try. On Saturday, come taste newly released vintages of wines we've loved in the past, including one very prestigious Pinot Noir.

Saturday, February 6, 2016
Bonamici – Finally! Mario's coming in to pour his Bonamici wines. This is a little-known winery with eye-catching labels and they're BRAND NEW to our store! When's the last time we tried a NEW winery!?! We don't know.

Saturday, February 13, 2016
Culmina – Celebrate the day before Valentine's day with one of the best newer wineries in the Okanagan. Actually, forget about the Valentine's Day thing, we don't really know how to tie that in.
