Wine School for Wine Lovers: The Best for Less Wines

Wine Adventures presents… The Best for Less

Join wine journalist and educator Gloria Chang on a journey through the wine world with an intimate sit-down tasting of eight wines that consistently deliver beyond their price. Some call them “value” wines. We call them excellent! We’ll explore a variety of wines from around the world as you learn about the region they came from, the winemaking techniques, and the producers who make the wines. Think of it as a delicious, fun, and entertaining evening of wine school for wine lovers.*

This is a small and intimate sit-down tasting with light finger food, and a beautiful slideshow to take you on an engaging, enlightening, and educational journey through the world of wine so you can make smarter wine choices and maximize your wine pleasure.

It’s #wineschool for #winelovers!

*WSET1 and WSET2 wine students will find this tasting both enjoyable and useful. WSET3 wine students will also find much to enjoy and can consider this tasting as a review of the wine regions, but not as a study tool for in-depth details required for exam preparation.

FAQs – The Best for Less: Wine School for Wine Lovers

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Legacy Liquor Store, our venue partner for our 2015/2016 tastings and workshops, is a very short walk from the Main Street-Science World Skytrain Station.

Is there a dress code?

No. These wines are some of the best in the world (we think), but how we learn and taste them is fun, social, and approachable.

Do I need any prior wine knowledge? Will it be at the right level for me? 

We are professional wine journalists. We don’t dumb down, and we don’t use incomprehensible jargon. Beginner or advanced in wine knowledge, you’ll learn lots.

Will I feel awkward coming without a date or a friend?

No, not at all. In fact, more than half of those who come to enjoy and learn come on their own. This is a sit-down tasting around a single table. We are very relaxed and social. You’ll be glad you joined.

Will I be able to buy the wines we taste? 

Yes. All of the wines for this tasting are available at Legacy Liquor Store.

Is my registration/ticket transferable?

We cannot offer refunds, but yes, should plans change for you, you’re more than welcome to send a friend in your place for this tasting. Please send us their contact details in advance:
