The 2016 edition of Arts Club Theatre’s California Wine Fair will bring 400 premium wines from 150 top California producers to Vancouver’s Convention Centre on Monday evening, April 25.
Wineries including Meiomi Estate, Signorello Estate and Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars will pour signature selections exclusive to this event. Santa Barbara County’s Meiomi includes three vineyards renowned for their unique pinot noir and chardonnay.
Signorello Estate’s unique Napa Valley hillside terrain – with its varied soil and sun exposures – shapes the dynamic body of their cabernet sauvignon and chardonnays. As a California Wine Fair attendee, you’ll enjoy the rare opportunity to taste notes of scorched earth, new saddle leather and crushed rock layered into wines from this progressive estate regarded for their sustainable farming practices.
Pioneer grape grower Nathan Fay made Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars synonymous with cabernet sauvignon. Fey’s also responsible for planting the first cabernet sauvignon in the Stag’s Leap District as well as taking first place in the Cabernet Sauvignon category at the Judgment of Paris.
Rounding out a rich array of 400 premium wines will be an extensive silent auction featuring premium California wines, luxury goods and entertainment and travel packages.
