Island Wine Tasting on Tuesday April 19th in Victoria

The Wine Islands Vintners Association is hosting an evening wine tasting at the Empress next Tuesday.   I would like to go but much depends on getting care for Max.

 From their website:
Spring Tasting Event ~ April 19th
Come to mingle and sample product from Vancouver Island and Gulf Island wineries, cideries and more on April 19th at the Fairmont Empress in Victoria. This will be the launch of WIVA's Passport to the Wine Islands and the first opportunity to pick up your copy, while also meeting the authors of the newly released Island Wineries of British Columbia book. Have the winemakers and authors sign your copy as you sip away!
