The 2009 “Naramata Unfiltered” Sommelier Bootcamp Begins


Arrived on the Naramata Bench for the annual Sommelier Bootcamp Wine Retreat a few hours ago with a couple dozen BC wine pros, chefs, and restaurateurs. Lots of familiar faces. First stop was Lake Breeze for four educational flights of goodness, and now there’s a group of us lounging around the hot tub at Therapy Vineyards (a magnificent day). Dinner tonight will be in the barrel room at Poplar Grove, courtesy of Cam and Dana of Joy Road Catering. Stoked.

I’ll be reporting intermittently over the next couple of days, and hopefully having quite a bit of fun. Check back often for photos and updates.

    Oh how fun a trip it is! If I’d known, I would have crashed it…
