The GOODS from House Wine

Vancouver, BC | In one corner, we have a long-time champion, a country whose name is synonymous with wine. With centuries of practise, France produces some of the world’s most highly sought after wines. In the other corner, we have South America: the ‘new-comer’. In the last few years, Chile and Argentina have charmed us with friendly and affordable wines. What happens when these two regions go head to head? It’s a delicious taste-off of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and more. To ensure a fair fight, we will be pouring the wines ‘blind’ and asking you to cast your vote.
