I gotta say, just going to the BC Liquor Store, even the one at Cambie and 39th Avenue, doesn't seem to satisfy us for the variety of really good farm gate BC wines that we would like to see. We have decided to make a regular pilgrimage to the Village VQA stores, three of which grace the lower mainland. Every Saturday there is a wine-tasting event, and I can't wait to see some of our favourite lesser known wineries being promoted.
