Olympics in BC: will wine be able to profit?

Jamie Maw leads off an interesting subject over at EGullet about the food and beverage scene in BC come 2010. Use the topic header above to link and maybe even join EGullet.

There's also a link to a Slate article about Piedmont's failure to get wine in the media spotlight during the Olympic coverage.

Interesting prediction: U.S. chains will buy lots of properties to cash in over the lead-up and actual games period and then (as I predict) vanish - leaving huge holes physcally and economically in the dining landscape.

How will this effect BC wineries? Any Salt Lake or Lake Placid readers to contribute?
