Whether you just enjoy trying a new bottle or you’re on your way to becoming a vino virtuoso, don’t miss this opportunity to experience select Canadian wines while learning from the expertise of Professional Sommelier and Wine Educator, James Pollock.

Sample four wines, learn about what makes our Canadian wine regions unique, and put your knowledge to the test in fun trivia about Canada and wine, all while connecting with fellow UBC Sauder alumni.

Registration fee includes four wine tastings and hors d’oeuvres, and trivia winners take home a prize! We look forward to seeing you there.
