Reach Gallery Museum Event Needs Your Tastebuds

Winemaker’s Dinner in the Gallery

Part proceeds support children’s programming at The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford.

Saturday, May 23 marks the first fundraiser at Abbotsford’s new gallery-museum, The Reach.
On behalf of The Reach, Chef Michael and his culinary team at The Ramada Plaza & Conference Centre, winemaker Bradley Cooper of Township 7 Vineyards & Winery, and Whatcom Wine & Spirits bring you an evening of gourmet food paired with highly acclaimed B.C. wine, right in the centre of art and artefacts.

The evening starts with a stand-up reception that includes warm and cool appetizers and Township 7’s Seven Stars sparkling wine, made in the traditional method. The evening then moves through four more courses paired with viognier, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, and merlot, and finishes with the much sought-after (very few cases were produced) Black Cloud pinot noir paired with dessert.
Between each course, Chef Michael and winemaker Bradley Cooper will talk to guests about their respective picks for food and wine. Seats are limited to 48, so you know the evening will be intimate, with Chef and winemaker able to pay personal attention to guests.
Six courses and six wines in support of children’s programming at The Reach: $125 per person. Tickets go on sale May 9 at Whatcom Wine & Spirits. Call 604-870-1050 ext. 6170 to reserve yours.

Talking WIne and Social Media in Kelowna

I've been invited to showcase my wines and co-host a general discussion on the BC wine scene, Web 2.0 and social wine media to a gathering at the Wine Museum on Thursday night (May 7. 2009)

I'll be leading the assembled through a selection of Township 7 wines I've made over the past few years and, of course, I'll sneak in my Black Cloud Pinot Noir as well.

During the tasting, Julianna Hayes and I will talk about what's new on the BC wine scene and where things are heading. We'll also discuss what we're doing with social media and let the crowd know about what we think works for wine people. We expect to have a little give-and-take and some questions to answer.

Interested? Call the wine museum directly for tickets 250-868-0441
