Wine Tasting with a Social Twist

Event Details

Vancouver Urban Winery

On Wednesday May 16th, join Tinhorn Creek Vineyards Winemaker and CEO Sandra Oldfield and the Tinhorn team for Wine Tasting with a Social Twist at the Vancouver Urban Winery.

The event is structured as brown bag tasting meets speed dating, with a fast paced tasting of nine different Tinhorn Creek wines, followed by light canapés and a guided unveiling of wines by Sandra Oldfield. The event celebrates the age of social media, and reflects the fast paced times we live in while making wine tasting fun. Once guests move through each table of brown bag tastings, winemaker Sandra Oldfield will guide tasters through the nuances of each varietal, with the chance to win many great prizes. Chef Jeff Van Geest from Miradoro Restaurant at Tinhorn Creek Vineyards is partnering with Vancouver’s longest-standing French restaurant Le Gavroche to create some delicious canapés to pair with the wines.

Between delectable bites and sips of incredible wines, guests will have the chance to meet the people behind the Tinhorn Twitter handles: @SandraOldfield, Winemaker & CEO; @Andrew_Tinhorn, Vineyard Manager Andrew Moon; @KorolKuklo Assistant Winemaker; @linzyw, Marketing Coordinator Lindsey White; @mbuschleague, Sales Manager Mark Butschler; and @winegirljules, Sales & Marketing Manager Julie Copland-Stene. For all you tweeters, the event hastag is #socialtwist.
