Annual PFV event in Vancouver and Whistler,

For its latest annual event, members of Primum Familiae Vini travelled to beautiful British Columbia for a series of events jointly organised by their local agents from March 8-11, 2008.

As in past years in other provinces of Canada, the
local Liquor Board welcomed the visit with a promotion featuring some of the finest wines of the various producers.

trade and consumer tastings were held at the Four Seasons Vancouver which also hosted a most spectacular gala dinner orchestrated by its General Manager Mr Guy Rigby, a long time friend of PFV.
A tasting for selected members of the press was also held with two rare wines from each producer.
A detailed report can be seen on
