Liberty Wines, who was known for their famous annual oyster festival each January, has got a whole new look. They’ve shucked off the old shell and now are getting rave reviews for their new annual Taste of BC event at the Hyatt hotel. Lots of North Shore faces in the crowd got a chance to sip and sample from a wide range of wineries and dineries and all for a very good cause – BC Children’s Hospital.
