On January 25th the BCBC had its first wine tasting paired with great food and Belgian sweets! Our guests were treated with a great selection of wines from France, Italy, Spain, California, most of them not available at the LCBO (also including a “bubbly” and a great Cognac!).
This private selection has been made by our partners’ wine agents:
Nicholas Pearce Wines (NP Wines)
In a friendly environment, our guests circulated with their tasting glass from agent to agent, spoke with them and learned about the wines they offer, asked questions, and expressed their interests. Each guest had their own wine booklet which enabled them to get detailed information of each wine, pairing suggestions, and make their own notes, you can download a copy of the booklet here: Booklet BCBC Wines.
A wine tasting includes more wines to taste than “you can reasonably drink” and still be able to “objectively” select the wines you want to order to enjoy at home later. Therefore, we encouraged our guests to do like the “pros” and spit the wines they tasted in the spittoons provided, to drink water regularly to stay hydrated, to eat a piece of bread, finger food, Belgian chocolates, and Calissons d’Aix to better enjoy their wine tasting experience.
For the one who could not attend you will find a list of the wines tasted in the booklet Booklet BCBC Wines – including the list with the agents’ contact info and websites. Note that they also represent other wineries and wines that were not tasted that night, please ask them for their more complete lists.
