The Best of BC Wines Uncorked takes place on Saturday, Nov. 2, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. in the Galleria at Port Moody City Hall.
A fundraiser for the Port Moody Arts Centre, the event features new and current releases from top B.C. wineries.
Wines from more than 35 B.C. wineries will be highlighted, including a number of new wineries joining the event for the first time, according to a press release.
Guests will also be able to select their favourite wines enjoyed during the tasting and order mixed cases at the event through the new Port Moody Liquor Store.
"The continuing success of the Best of BC Wines Uncorked in the Tri-Cities is due to the emergence of a genuine wine culture outside of Vancouver," wine expert and Tri-Cities NOW wine columnist John Gerum said. "Local residents are truly interested in learning and trying new wines and sharing their newfound knowledge with friends and family, adding to the enjoyment that life offers.
"The Best of BC Wines Uncorked is delighted to offer guests a wine experience that adds to our emerging wine culture."
Local performers Chico and Jarred will play their mix of jazz, Latin, pop and blues-infused music, while attendees will also be able to sample savoury dishes from Natural Pastures Cheese Company, Martins Marvelous Naturals, Tri-Cities Tasters, COBS Bread, Marketplace IGA and Pasta Polo Restaurant, all sponsors of the event.
Tickets cost $45 each (inclusive of all charges), and are available online at www.bcuncorked.ca or by phone at 604-931-2008 or in person at the arts centre, located at 2425 St. Johns St.
