This week we sit down and pour it up with one of our favorite Canadians Julian of BC Wine Trends and learned more about the love of country music and rosé with our friends of the Strawberry Wine Company!
About BC Wine Trends
Julian resides in the Okanagan Valley, close to so many first-class wineries and enthusiastic winemakers. Before starting the BC Wine Trends blog in 2015, he had the opportunity to visit wineries on three continents. Born in Melbourne, Julian spent time in Margaret River, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula and Gippsland, the home of his favourite Pinot “Bass Phillip”. He was fortunate to go to school with Phil Jones and remember helping him out with some early ’70s plantings in his Leongatha vineyard. Best Aussie Wine 2013. Living in Phoenix for 15 years gave us the opportunity for multiple trips to the California wineries in Napa, Sonoma, Lodi, Paso Robles, Temecula, and his favorite Santa Barbara. Hard to beat the Lodi Zins and Santa Barbara Pinots for value! Another favorite west coast destination was Seattle with easy access to the Woodinville wineries, love those Cabs and Syrahs. His vacations took us to some exciting winery locations in Italy (Tuscany and Veneto where we fell in love with Amarone). In Spain the sparkling wines of Cava outside of Barcelona and the great reds of Roja.
This gives you a feel for his background. Our objective for the wine blog is to cut through the Marketing hype and deliver information of value to BC Wine enthusiasts.
About Strawberry Wine Company
Strawberry Wine Company was created in the middle of a country concert for two reasons: 1. Combining a passion for the love of music and the love of wine 2. Building a community for people who love both of those things. SWC was founded as a homage to pay tribute to country music’s past, but also looking forward with a bright and fun outlook for the future. Our debut Rosé is made from grapes of Petite Verdot grown in sunny Clarksburg, California. This is the perfect Rosé to take with you to your next concert, picnic or fun event. Cheers!
Strawberry Wine Company Rosé
This rosé is made from grapes of Petit Verdot grown in Clarksburg California. This wine was produced and bottled in Paso Robles, California by winemaker Thomas Booth of the WineBoss.
Tasting Notes: Nose of fresh-cut watermelon, banana, and strawberry fields, the palate is filled with white flowers, pink peaches, rosewater, cantaloupe, and a finish of Meyer lemons.
