This past weekend saw the start of the latest BCGWJ level one training program. Two day sessions were conducted on the island and on the mainland. Thanks to Rick Homer (Victoria) and Axel Kroitsch (Mainland) for leading these sessions. Many participants said that they learned more in two days than they thought they’d learn in the whole course.
On behalf of the guild, I’d like to extend my sincere appreciation to Rick Homer who has developed the bulk of this thorough and amazing program.
I am looking forward to the first BCGWJ session for 2018. The Cabernet Sauvignon flight has been prepared by Rosina Nilsson of the Nanaimo chapter. Make sure to read the notes which have been posted online.
It has been a long journey, but our new site is now ready. There are still a lot of bugs to fix, so currently this is more of a ‘beta’ version. I am making changes to it all the time, so you may notice differences from day to day. The basics are here – this months tasting notes and our new schedule, so please spend some time exploring it and let me know of any problems you encounter. Let me know what you like and don’t like about it. Most importantly, I hope everything is easy to find.
The site is intended to be viewed by the public as well as the members in our chapters. Two pages are password protected – the chapter membership lists and our ‘stats’ page. You will receive the correct password via email shortly.
Don’t forget, the guild also has a Facebook page that has lots of interesting articles, videos and quizzes. Check the “Resources’ page for the link.
