December 19th, 2020- Kurtis Kolt & The Wine Diva with Outstanding Bottles and Bubbles  

hello

Kurtis Kolt & The Wine Diva with Outstanding Bottles and Bubbles

 

THE SHOW

 

As the Holidays get closer I’ve always found myself drawing closer to friends. It’s never planned, it just happens.

It may be because of shared experiences and moments or flat out long time friendships.

Whateverrrrr!

I sent out two invites this week.  One to Kurtis Kolt.

Kurtis-Kolt

Vancouver based wine consultant, occasional writer for VanMag, a wine educator and top tier Wine Judge.

And a friend.

I asked if he would bring with him a list of wines that impressed him over the year and that could be found at most BC Liquor Stores.

Kurtis said Yes.   He Suggested 4 Whites – One Pink – 4 Reds. Something for everyone.  Please find the list below..

I also wanted to ask Kurtis about the state of BC Restaurants and Wineries in 2020 and how we can help both in 2021.
