We have been dreaming about this next event for a while! We’re happy to announce that on Tuesday, May 16th, 7–9pm, we welcome Marcus Ansems, Master of Wine and owner/winemaker of Daydreamer Wines, to our little family shop!
There are multiple reasons why we wanted to do an event with Marcus. He makes delicious wine. He is dedicated to the environment and to organic/low intervention farming. He adds as little to the wine as possible. The wines are named after family members and the family crest is on his high-end wines. He likes to say that it, "keeps him honest!" But more important to us is that it is a family business. All that they've done was once a "Daydream", and that's just like how we started!
Marcus was born in Australia and was literally raised in the vineyard. He now brings over 30 vintages of experience of making wine in Europe, South Africa, Australia and Canada. Today, he lives on the Naramata Bench and together with his wife Rachel (a highly trained wine taster with International wine business experience) they own and run their boutique winery.
Marcus recently became the fifth Master of Wine in Canada and he is the only University qualified winemaker/viticulturist MW in the country. But, those are just accolades that he has never mentioned to us once, and he comes across as one of the humblest guys you will ever meet.
Along with the wines, there will be some irresistible cheese from Les Amis du Fromage and charcuterie selections from our favourite local suppliers.
This event will be a casual yet intimate setting. It also means that, thanks to our cozy quarters, space is very limited. Please act soon to secure your spot(s). Tickets are $15 per person and must be purchased either online, in person or by phone 604-734-8543.
We hope you will join us for what we are sure will be a fantastic evening!
