Friends with wine is a non-profit society in British Columbia committed to the development of knowledge and interest in fine and not-so-fine wines of the world. Our main focus is on education through consumption. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a taste is worth a thousand pictures.
We have four major educational events throughout the year to coincide with the seasons. These events feature wines from all over the world and consist of the entire wine spectrum–from red to white to dessert to sparkling. These tastings are a wonderful experience for all of our members–from the beginner to the experienced. The seasonal events are a rare opportunity to experience the wines of the world.
We also have the occasional seminar; some focusing on a single region, others showcasing a single wine progressing through a vertical flight.
Our members are from all backgrounds and all ages. Some young. Some old. Some single. Some couples. The idea behind our Society is not only to provide the opportunity to find a new friend in wine, but create some real friends along the way brought together with a desire to learn more about all the wonderful wine we have available to us here in British Columbia.
