VQA wine store closure in Courtenay sad thing

Dear editor,

It is with heavy heart that I must watch the closing of the Courtenay VQA wine store.

Dear editor,

It is with heavy heart that I must watch the closing of the Courtenay VQA wine store.

This store was a great way to showcase the wines of B.C., and it is a shame that not more people from the Comox Valley were able to make the short trip to visit it.

Its location may not have enabled it to be in the thick of Comox Valley commerce, but word of mouth was getting around and folks just needed to give it a try.

Not only were Cindy and her staff very knowledgeable about the many wines that our beautiful province has to offer, they were also able to offer assistance by getting to know their customers and each person’s particular likes and dislikes.

Weekend tastings were not only times to get to know the wines, but also to meet with others who enjoyed drinking the wines of B.C., and compare notes.

Sabine Schill,
