What a treat it was to discuss all things BC wine with this trio of professionals. Two of the more prominent and distinguished winemakers in the Okanagan Valley in Alan Dickinson of Synchromesh Winery and Richard Kanazawa of Bench 1775 Winery came on to talk about what they've been up to so far with this years harvest, navigating another long season of heat and forest fires, global warming, where they see things headed and their own personal philosophies with regards to sustainable winemaking. It was a thrilling to hear them gush about work they genuinely love and enjoy.
Then there's one of the most respected and established sommeliers in Vancouver dishing on what she's seeing in her restaurant, Annalena, but also with regards to guest preferences and how this aspect of the BC wine market is evolving.
