The day-long tour of three Fraser Valley vineyards begins before noon at rendezvous points in Vancouver, Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows, and north Langley. Once picked up from these locations, you and up to 20 other guests venture out with a wine expert, who discusses the history and terroir of Backyard Vineyards, Township 7 Vineyards and Winery, and Domaine de Chaberton Estate Winery with a VIP tasting and tour at each stop. The specialist will provide each guest with picnic style lunch consisting of a brie/pear Panini or a three cheese Panini, kettle chips, bottled water and a sweet to enjoy at tables overlooking the valley..

West Coast Wine Education

What's proper etiquette for the queen's sommelier? West Coast Wine Education's John Gerum confronted this question head on when he served Queen Elizabeth II. Apparently he made the right choice, as he went on to pour wine for prime ministers, presidents, provincial premiers, and cultural icons during his 20-year career. Gerum's achievement distills three generations of fine-dining experience that was passed down from his father, a chef, and his grandfather, a maitre d'. Wine education was always his passion, so when starting out, he sought personal instruction from the master sommelier Andrew Laliberté and demonstrated a palate refined enough to earn him membership and certification from the International Sommelier Guild. Gerum often merges his know-how with other wine educators to cultivate a roster of classes and hone their delivery. These experts join in delineating scotch terroir and describing the bouquet of a student's favourite pinot-stained shirt with an easy professionalism that has enthralled groups of up to 300 people. They share their expertise with casual drinkers and professionals during two-hour workshops, in consultation for store openings and events, and through appearances on Global TV.
