Crush – A Fine Wine Affair – Sunday, October 21, 2018

This year’s live auction features an 1845 bottle of Cossart Gordon Madeira Solera Boal from Portugal. 

Victoria, BC…Crush, the Belfry Theatre’s eighth annual fine wine auction and tasting event, takes place at the Delta Ocean Point Resort (100 Harbour Road, Victoria) on October 21 at 5 pm. Tickets are $95.

Roshan Vickery, Earl Wilde and Jenny Fitterer Crush 2017

This year’s live auction features the oldest vintage bottle yet: a Cossart Gordon Madeira Solera Boal from Portugal from 1845 valued at over $1200. But fear not: there will be more modestly valued bottles in the 20-lot auction from France, Australia, BC and elsewhere suitable for the entry level bidder as well.

Sommelier and wine educator Earl Wilde is our auction host and will regale the crowd with stories for each bottle up on the block. Roshan Vickery is our auctioneer extraordinaire and the two of them make an informative and entertaining team.

Crush also features tastings from BC’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.

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.

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.
