A word from Les Chevaliers
Les Chevaliers is a wine club for those who adore good wine but do not have a large cellar of over 1,000 bottles of fabulous French vintages; want to know other people who appreciate fine wine; and want the opportunity to taste a vast variety of great French wines without travelling to France. If this sounds like you, then Les Chevaliers is worth your $50 dollar membership. We try and meet about six times a year for tastings. Formal tastings are held downtown at the Rosedale hotel just off Robson street. Other venues, that involve food and wine pairings, are held at various restaurants throughout the downtown area. Events are priced at replacement of wine for the cellar; rental of wine glasses; and the cost of food (when served). Membership fees are mainly used to stock the cellar. A host of volunteers run the events.
Events are moderated by vintners, or local wine writers and experts. We try and do some vertical tastings, some blind tastings, and some comparison tastings over the course of the year. Some members love their champagne, while others prefer the Bordeaux or burgundies. Whatever your passion or preference, as long as it is fabulous and sometimes rare vintages, our cellar is a Tour de France from Vancouver.
