Sanduz Estate Wines

Friends of ours recently told us about Sanduz Estate Wines, which offers a range of fruit and grape wines in addition to syrups, jellies and honeys.  We headed over to their winery and tasting room in Richmond, BC this afternoon.

They have an interesting selection of fruit wines, from granny smith apple to rhubarb.  I tasted the granny smith, blueberry and blackberry.  They were all delicious, but the blueberry wine was particularly impressive.

Sanduz was founded in 2006 and has won numerous awards, which surprised me because I had never heard of it.  Their products aren’t in any other stores, so you will have to make your way out to there if you want to get your hands on a bottle or two.  You won’t be disappointed.

CBC Nooners

Nooner concert series at CBC Plaza

So, I have not been blogging much.  Probably because I have either been chained to my desk or on the road.  I actually got away from my desk at lunch today, and headed over to the CBC building on Hamilton for their “Nooner” concert series.

Every weekday this summer, they are putting on a free live concert during the lunch hour.  Today, Juno award winning Greg Sczebel and his band played a rousing set.  It was a little rock, a little jazz, and a whole lot of fun!  Sczebel will be touring with Paul Brandt in the very near future.

The best part is that I was able to combine two of my great loves – the CBC AND good coffee!  Adjacent to the CBC’s outdoor stage area is a very quaint JJ Bean cafe, complete with green roof and patio seating.  Talk about a great location!
