Wine Education with Sommelier Mia Papadopoulos

First-class wines, delicious eats and the intimacy of a private wine education class make this journey through the Okanagan and the rest of the wine world a fantastic outing.

Ruby red, light bodied with a spunky attitude, Okanagan Pinot Noir reminds us of warm summer nights, first kisses, dancing through rainstorms and backpacking through Burgundy. But never mind our silly sentiments, Western Canadian Pinot Noirs, though only a small drop in the “world of wine” bucket, represent an integral part of the world's youngest wine region.

To understand how Pinot Noir tastes, Mia will set up a flight from three key categories: Old World versus New; cool climate versus warm; and young wine versus old.
