Is There a Distinctly “Vancouver” Watch?
We asked a dozen-plus of the city's top sommeliers to share their picks with us for some very specific scenarios...including what bevvies to bring on a kayak trip.
You’re planning a kayak trip, and while you want to toast the great outdoors, bottles are a no-no. What box of wine do you buy?
I ordered this wine when chef David Gunawan asked me to find an organic cooking wine for the Farmer’s Apprentice, and I remember being impressed by how good it was! I saw the use of red wine increase drastically after that switch.—Kieran Fanning, Pepino’s
This is an organic, crisp and citrusy white blend from what is apparently my favourite value region in Italy, Abruzzo. It should be delicious with oysters if you find some on the beach, but it also works with canned beans.—Kelcie Jones, Chambar
This is a totally crushable drop of Italian red wine. No chilling necessary. And a huge winner with your smokies grilled over a beach fire.—Jason Yamasaki, JOEY
I’ve been known to take to the water with wine in my craft (only where legal, of course), but I prefer cans to boxes—they are single-serve, more versatile, and you can dangle them in the water to keep them cool, so a handful of these cans should get you through the streams in style.—Mireille Sauvé, Wine Umbrella
Produced by the Perrin family of the famed Château de Beaucastel. Very crushable, with aromas of red berries and citrus with a fresh acidity.—Lisa Cook, Savio Volpe
A kayak trip means summertime—and rosé.—Sebastien Le Goff, Cactus Club
Morning, noon, night, indoors, outdoors…rosé is versatile.—Iori Kataoka, Yuwa
