Select Wines' Passport to France at the Sutton Place Hotel Vancouver

Jan 30, 2006

By Catherine Barr


It's going to be a big year for French wines in Vancouver according to those in the industry. Not only is the country featured for this year's upcoming Playhouse International Wine Festival, but lots of supporting parties and tastings are highlighting the region in continental style. This past Monday, at the Sutton Place Hotel, Select Wine Merchants hosted the "Passport to France" event featuring a selection of B.C.'s favourite French wines and local restaurants to match.
