The "Last Judgement of BC": a Watershed Moment
By: Tim Pawsey
I’m pretty sure that Judgment of BC 2019 was one of the largest tastings of its kind ever held in Canada. On October 29th 34 judges sat down at the Penticton Lakeside Resort. We concluded what’s been a worthy exercise for BC wines since the first ‘Judgment’ took place in 2015.

TEMPEST THEATRE PRESENTS
Tempest Theatre Presents NOIRE UNSCRIPTED: The Dark Side Of Wine Country.
A writing and theatrical performance improvised in real time.
On the Tempest stage, local writer Nikos Theodosakis and three Vancouver master improvisers will create and perform a play based on audience suggestions, the wild musings of Nikos and many, many interruptions to keep them charged, challenged and in the moment. The unfinished script is performed (sight unseen) by the actors and when they run out of pages, they must continue the plot. Oh, and the writer can interject at any moment to ambush their logic and send them on a wild goose chase. Don’t believe it’s all made up? Then we’ll see you at both shows.
Featuring: Graeme Duffy , Lauren McGibbon, Scott Patey
and Special guest Writer Nikos Theodosakis
Cost: $25 or $15 for Students ( At the Door only with Valid Student ID)
When: Friday, October 4th 7:30pm
Saturday, October 5th 7:30pm
*Doors open at 7pm

Wines of Canada - Discover the Okanagan Valley in British Columibia - Grape Experiences
By: Cindy Rynning
The only time I’ve visited the Okanagan Valley wine region in British Columbia was during a conference in 2013. I had the opportunity to visit wineries that were (and still are) producing beautiful selections in breathtaking settings. I’ve longed to return.
