Drawing on our extensive British Columbia wine label collection, join Royal BC Museum Curator Dr Lorne Hammond for a sparkling toast to forgotten classics and the popular wines of the 1960s and 1970s. He will look at the teenage years of the wine industry, the cast of interesting trailblazing vintners and how the industry first came to be established before growing into the mature, vibrant industry it is today.

Beth Crawford, owner of the VQA wine shop at Mattick’s Farm, will provide a snapshot of the VQA and its importance to BC.

You will enjoy sampling over 30 different wines from all over BC including the Okanagan, Vancouver Island and Salt Spring Island.
