BC Uncorked was created by West Coast Experiences as a way to support an amazing charity in the community and encourage local wine and food lovers to experience the best BC has to offer.
This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of BC Uncorked, which has expanded and grown considerably since 2007. The venue at the Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club has proven to be a great fit for this event. This unique West Coast inspired building encourages the enjoyment of an indoor tasting tour of BC’s finest wineries, and local restaurants and caterers.
The upcoming March event features wines from over 45 select BC wineries, matched with intriguing foods provided by 8-10 of the best local restaurants and caterers. BC Uncorked is thrilled to partner with Team Taylor of the Ride to Conquer Cancer.
The Ride to Conquer Cancer, presented by Silver Wheaton, benefits the BC Cancer Foundation. This is a unique two-day cycling event slated for the summer of 2018. During this bold cycling journey, members will ride for two days through picturesque scenery with a clear vision: a world free from cancer. For more information on Team Taylor click here.
