November 26th Wine Tasting & Screening Of “Red Obsession” At The Rio


Our friends over the Rio Theatre are getting set for another Wine Tasting + Film Night, this time featuring the Western Canadian Premiere of Red Obsession on Tuesday, November 26th. The film looks at the great and storied chateaux of Bordeaux as they struggle to accommodate the world’s increasingly voracious appetites for their rare and expensive wines.

“We are excited to have the support of Marquis Wine CellarsBella WinesDirect WinesRich Massey Wine and SpiritsSummerhill Pyramid Winery, and Okanagan Crush Pad, who are all set to pour their fantastic wares next Tuesday.” 

Co-director Warwick Ross will be there in person together with veteran broadcaster, wine-lover, and host of Tasting Room Radio, Terry David Mulligan, who will lead the post-screening Q&A. This looks like a fascinating documentary. Watch the trailer above.
