West Coast Wine Education VIP Wine Tour


West Coast Wine Education is the brain child of wine expert John Gerum. The company was created in 2004 from a desire to help the general public become more educated consumers in the world of wine.

John worked in fine dining and luxury hotel management for 20 years. His focus on wine education led him to obtain an Advanced Wine Certificate more than a decade ago, and he has been granted membership and certification from the International Sommelier Guild. He attends many wine education workshops and tastes hundreds of wine samples each year to keep his wine knowledge up to date. John has been called on to personally serve Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Prime Ministers, Presidents, Provincial Premiers, entertainers and major sports celebrities.

Over the past few years, his company has grown from offering an occasional beginner’s wine appreciation course to running both beginner’s and advanced level courses all year long. They also offer a number of unique and exciting workshops, events and wine clubs, including Best of BC Wines Uncorked.

If you would like to have a chance to learn some more about wines, and sample local vintages, you might be interested in West Coast Wine Education’s VIP Fraser Valley Wine Tour on Sunday, August 29th. A tour bus departs from Port Moody Arts Centre at 9:30am, and drops you back off at 4:30pm.

Guests will join John Gerum on a private tour of some of the best Fraser Valley Wineries. All wineries on the tour produce VQA BC wines or quality BC wines. No fruit wineries are included on the tour.

Mid-way through the tour, there a gourmet artisan lunch will be provided, consisting of artisan breads, cheeses, BBQ, fresh salad selections and dessert selections.
