Dine-out Vancouver Festival Presents The Grape Debate Jan 31

ll bets are off in this head to head debate on a key issue facing the British Columbia wine industry. All is resolved with the wine tasting that follows!

The Motion: Is wine made in the vineyard or in the winery?


Every wine is unique in some way. Some would attribute these distinctive qualities to terroir, while others would consider them to be a reflection of a winemaker’s style.

Vineyard location and weather during the growing season certainly impact the grapes in many ways, but the winemaker’s attention to detail and signature techniques may also have significant effects on the final product. Is the importance of terroir overstated? Are talented winemakers undervalued? And where do vineyard managers fit into all of this?

Join us for this year’s The Grape Debate, where our panel of wine experts will debate whether great wines are grown or made. Following the program, sip and sample your way through some of BC’s finest wineries and cast your vote!

Date: January 31
Time: 7:00pm Debate | 8:30pm Wine Tasting
Location: Vancouver Public Library, 350 West Georgia, Lower Level
Presented by: Alumni UBC and the Wines of British Columbia
