i’m not sure there is a better reception than great wine and delicious nibbles to welcome any guest.
my best friend is flying in from toronto in at the end of the month, and it just happens to coincide with Winefest – Calgary’s all-inclusive wine event at stampede park’s BMO centre.
so maybe a better reception is all-inclusive wine and nibbles with someone else in charge of the preparation and dishes.
i wonder if they’ll also have wigs or props? we like to dress up.
mixing and mingling among the crowd while sampling any of the 266 wines from the world’s most renowned wine regions will be the perfect way to catch up on all of our months apart.
since i’m a pretty novice wine lover, i’m happy to know that wine experts will be on hand to share their knowledge and suggest tasting notes. to me, wine smells like wine. not that i want it to smell or taste like dirt or grass or some of the other notes i’m told about.
either way, it’s a fun outing to discover new wines and increase my wine knowledge. thanks to events like this in the past, i’m now a happy red drinker – in the past you would only find me with a sweet white.
here’s the super fun part. you get to get classy afternoon wine drunk, because i’m giving away two tickets (must be 18+).
giveaway: two tickets to winefest calgary’s afternoon session on february, saturday 20 afternoon from 2-5 p.m. tickets are all inclusive, which includes entry and unlimited sampling.
