Crush – A Fine Wine Affair – Sunday, October 20, 2019

The Belfry Theatre’s ninth annual fine wine auction and tasting event takes place at the Delta Ocean Pointe Resort.

This year’s live auction features a 1988 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne valued at $675. But fear not: there will be more modestly valued bottles in the 20-lot auction from France, Italy, British Columbia and elsewhere suitable for the entry-level bidder as well.

The budding comedy duo of Earl Wilde and Roshan Vickery will handle the fine wine auction. Sommelier and wine educator Earl is our auction host – he has an entertaining story about each bottle up on the block. Roshan Vickery is our auctioneer extraordinaire – he’ll make spending money even more fun.

Writer (and good egg) Robert Moyes is creating the auction catalogue, and his enticing wine posts (describing each lot) will be posted at – if only we could taste words.

Crush 2019 features tastings from British Columbia’s best wineries and cideries, hors d’oeuvres, live music and more. Chef Craig Stoneman will dazzle your palate with exquisite cuisine to complement the fine wine and cider tastings. The event also features the jazz stylings of the Tom Vickery Trio.

An accompanying silent auction features wine gift baskets and packages, dining, travel and other unique experiences of interest to the wine lover in every price bracket.

Presented by Odlum Brown, Crush 2019, the Belfry Theatre’s ninth annual fine wine auction and tasting event, takes place at the Delta Ocean Pointe Resort (100 Harbour Road, Victoria) on October 20 at 5 pm. Tickets are $95 and all proceeds benefit Victoria’s leading professional theatre company and its beautifully renovated 19th Century building in the heart of Fernwood.
