EP 133 | Sandra Oldfield, Kurtis Kolt, Rhys Pender. Helping Restaurants and Wineries in the year ahead
You may have noticed that our Podcast has a subtitle
Music. Film. Food. Wine. Those are the subjects I keep coming back to.
We do lots of music and film and some food but the wine pods have been few and far between. That’s going to change.
The stories and interviews that stand out for me are the interviews affecting people everywhere.
This week it’s how we – the food and wine fan – can support our local restaurants and wineries, cideries, breweries, distillers.
The pandemic has caused many restaurants to close or hold on for dear life.
Wineries will disappear over the next year. The same with brewers, cider makers, and distillers.
I really wanted to hear from three voices that deal with this community every day. The question – what can we do. How can we help?
Sandra Oldfield – 20 years a winemaker and X-CEO of Tinhorn Creek Winery. Now head of Elysian Projects, assisting and guiding wineries and restaurants.
Kurtis Kolt – Wine writer, judge, and educator. Many years in the restaurant business in downtown Vancouver.
Rhys Pender – Master of Wine, Winemaker at Little Farm Wines. Educator via WinePlus. A calm voice inside all the noise.
