This has been a bit of a quiet week, and while I have been working on a couple of posts that I hope to finish next week, my thoughts have been elsewhere. Instead of writing about wine, I’ve been sorting out travel plans and by this time tomorrow I will be approaching Vancouver. Strictly speaking, this is a family trip and not my preferred wine tourism, but I’m fairly certain that I’ll be able to sneak in some vinous fun.
There are three things on my wine To Do list at the moment. First, I need to procure and write up some Inniskillin icewine. Yes, it’s a classic to the point of nearly being a cliché, but still. Second, I look forward to trying some wine made in British Columbia, ideally while visiting a wine region near Vancouver. Third, I hope to enjoy more generally wines of North America, as they’re so thin on the ground in Australia, whereas I believe Canada imports wine from all over.
So while I’ll be away from my normal environment and ostensibly enjoying a holiday, I intend to continue to post from Vancouver, though in a leisurely fashion. And if anyone has any suggestions for wine activities there over the next two weeks, please let me know.
