Liberty’s Taste BC 2010 Vancouver’s Favourite
Fundraiser for BC Children’s Hospital

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (January 19th, 2010) – Great wine, fantastic food, hundreds of revelers and all for a wonderful cause!

Liberty Merchant Company’s 16th Annual Taste BC 2010 drew hundreds of Vancouverites to the Hyatt Regency Hotel on January 19th to indulge in tastings from some of the finest restaurants, wineries, breweries and cheese purveyors in BC.

The annual celebration of local flavours and the people who create them brought together the elite in British Columbia’s food and beverage industry, while raising proceeds for the BC Children’s Hospital’s Oak Tree Clinic.

Tied for “Best of Show” were Thornhaven Estate Winery 2008 Gewürztraminer and Foxtrot 2006 Pinot Noir. Aces Wine 2008 Pocket Aces Syrah won the People’s Choice Award for Favourite Drink, while Rodney’s Oyster Bar took the Favourite Food prize.

Liberty Merchant Company extends their appreciation to everyone who donated time, effort and product to the cause:
