Summer Sippers: BC Meets France

Summer Sippers: BC Meets France

 

Here’s a quick and dirty shopping list of the types of vinos which are great solo and pair nicely with picnic or barbie fare. You may already have some “go to” house favorites in your stable, but the list’s got a few BC and French picks generally available in Alberta and BC (and in the $30 and under price range). So grab some strawberries, quiche, pissaldière, salad niçoise, smoked salmon, olive tapenade, cheese, baguette, paté or saucisson et voilà, you’re sorted.

Santé!

Leela Jacobs, nvrlnd

Leela’s energy is infectious, her smile and laughter are like that hug you needed, even social-distanced. We first had an opportunity to collaborate with Leela and her colleagues on a fashion show in Calgary in November called XANTHUS, and it was a fantastic experience. Leela took us to a place that we didn’t know existed in Calgary, this oilman, and cowboy infested city. From that point on we followed Leela and her community and discovered a very different, and inspiring Calgary. Then again, on another cold night in Calgary, we found ourselves on the streets of Ramsey, at nvrlnd, a place where all the cool artists hang out. We hope you enjoy meeting Leela, she is an HK friend and a creative community champion. We ❤️Leela.
