A Taste of PoCo Spirit 2012 Features Sustainable Wines

Taste of Poco Spirit 2012 Wine Fundraiser

Every year, many groups hold fundraisers here in the Tri-Cities. Most of them are great, but there’s something about the event that PoCo Heritage puts on – together with renowned wine expert John Gerum and the folks at Earls Kitchen and Bar – that is extra special. A Taste of PoCo Spirit gives attendees the chance to sample wines from around the world, and pick up tips on tasting them and pairing them with food. Plus, there are delicious appetizers and the sense of satisfaction you get from helping a local non-profit group.

Sound good? We’ve got the details on the 2012 event.

Tickets: $40 before January 31st, $45 after (no HST), buy them online or in person at the Outlet at Leigh Square

The event coincides with Heritage Week here in BC, and the theme this year is “Energy in BC”. Taking off on that theme, organizers are featuring wines made using sustainable practices. Not only do they taste great, you can feel good drinking them. A full wine list is available online, if you want to peruse it beforehand. The selection is varied, both in terms of the wines themselves and their places of origin. It definitely promises to offer someone to wine lovers of all stripes.

As if all of this wasn’t enough, PoCo Heritage is currently preparing to establish a new Heritage Centre in Leigh Square. They will have a display on hand that will share some of the early concepts for this facility. By attending this event you are helping them get one step closer to this goal. If you think about it that way, it would be a terrible shame for you not to attend. So go forth, taste wines, and help make a new Heritage Centre in Port Coquitlam a reality.
