Nanaimo Winemakers Summer Social Competition

July 16, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Summer BBQ and Wine Competition

For this year’s summer BBQ, we are adding a bit of blind tasting/judging to the mix. The usual sharing table will be replaced with “The Summer Social Winemaker Competition” table. Wines that have been entered will be set out on the competition table. This will be a blind tasting with no winemaker identification on the bottles. You may taste one, two or all wines – the choice is yours. Everyone attending the BBQ will receive ONE ballot to vote for their favorite wine. Ballots will be tallied at 5:30 pm and the winner announced. The new Summer Social trophy will be awarded.
Nanaimo club members in good standing can enter 1 wine into the competition. If you wish to enter a wine, email Doug Markin to get entry instructions.
Good luck!

About Nanaimo Winemakers

The Nanaimo Winemakers is an amateur winemaking club that serves the Nanaimo area on Vancouver Island, BC. Our main focus is on making wine from real grapes, and the goal of the club is to share knowledge, experience, and resources so that we all learn to make better wine. The club also gets together for several social events each year where members share and compare the rewards of their efforts.

Join The Club

If you live in the Nanaimo area, and have ever wanted to learn how to make wine from real grapes, or simply want to meet with people of similar passion, the club might be just the thing. Joining the club also provides access to group sourcing of grapes, which means better fruit at lower prices. In addition, we bring in bulk winemaking supplies and have a crusher/destemer, and a couple of presses, which members can borrow as needed. Lastly, the club socials offer an opportunity to share in a relaxed setting and taste some truly awesome wines. Contact us for details.
