John Schreiner on Blue Grouse
In order to reach out to wine writers and sommeliers in Vancouver, the Cowichan Valley’s Blue Grouse Winery scheduled a luncheon and tasting on March 19 at a leading Vancouver restaurant.
It never took place because restaurants had been asked to shut down the previous week in order to control COVID-19 outbreaks.
In early May, Blue Grouse reached out to those same wine writers to do a virtual tasting using Zoom, the online communications technology that many of us might never have discovered but for COVID.
