June is Spanish Wine MonthSpanish Wines in Spotlight Throughout B.C. this June
During the month of June, 2010, B.C. wine fans will be hard‐pressed to miss the ongoing promotion being launched by Madrid‐based Wines from Spain.
BC Liquor Stores, Everything Wine and 12 of the province’s best restaurants are all taking part in this exciting month‐long promotion.
More than 20 Signature BC Liquor Stores will feature Spanish wines during the month of June via in‐store displays and handy Spanish wine booklets that consumers can take away with them free of charge. A free special event open to the public will take place from 3 to 6pm on Saturday June 5th at the Cambie and 39th Signature Store, featuring a virtual tour of Spain through guided wine sampling along with complimenting foods by Vancouver’s Café Barcelona with live Flamenco guitar to add to the Spanish vibe.
Everything Wine, the province’s largest wine stores, join the Spanish wine brigade with a great new selection of wines to feature during the month along with informative brochures that customers can use to lead them through the many great values that Spain has to offer. Both the North Vancouver and the Victoria locations of Everything Wine will celebrate this promotion with free special events open to the public which will both take place from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday June 19th, featuring festival‐style wine tastings along with catering by Vancouver’s Café Barcelona in North Vancouver and The Oyster in Victoria. Live Flamenco guitar will compliment both events.
Lastly, a Spanish wine‐themed month wouldn’t be complete without a province‐wide Wine‐bythe‐Glass campaign: 12 of Vancouver and Victoria’s best restaurants join in to promote the Spain’s vinicultural gems. During the month of June, 2010, the a dozen B.C. restaurants will each feature at least three Spanish wines by the glass as a special addition to their regular offerings, thus allowing diners a chance to experience first‐hand the amazing quality and value that Spain has to offer without having to commit to the purchase of a whole bottle.
