Sandhill's Howard Soon in Vancouver

Sandhill's Master Winemaker, Howard Soon, was in Vancouver to celebrate being selected as Winery of the Year in Wine Access magazine's Canadian Wine Awards.

Sandhill is the first winery to win Best White, Best Red, and Winery of the Year in the same year.

Howard visited Lynn and Steve at Global Morning News to talk about the awards.

Then he stopped by Urban Rush to tell Mike and Fiona about what you can tell about wine from the soil it's grown in.

Then, the day was capped off with a celebration of Sandhill & Howard at the Vancouver Aquarium.

Local Love

LOCAL Public Eatery was featured in today's Sweetspot:


Kits is one of our summer go-to spots (if only for the people-watching).

And now with Local Public Eatery opening in the old Malone’s space, it’s finally a winter hangout as well.

The new, much-anticipated gastro pub is big on comfort food—plus the unpretentious menu has cocktails like the Ell Caesar ($8), served in a boot. One can never go wrong with a classic burger ($12), and the West Coast chopped salad ($16) is a good way to veg out. And as for placating any sweet tooth, we stand by the perfectly-sticky caramel toffee cake ($6).

So when local patrons – pun slightly intended – start coming out in droves, our eyes will be just as entertained as our taste buds already are.
