Testimonials from other battery opera wine & cheese thingy 's!

Just wanted to let you know how much my wife and I (and son!) enjoyed
the wine and cheese party at Les Amis du Frommage, hosted by your
performance company. We were very surprised by the selection of wines
available (am glad to see they were from the Okanagan) and in
particular, had to make special comment on the Mt. Boucherie pinot -
I've never had this wine before (guess it's not that well known?) but
wow! What a pleasant surprise. I've since done some follow up on this
vineyard's offerings and begun to explore more from this vintner. A
pleasant journey! We are again looking forward to next year's event!

Thanks again for hosting this.

"I've never heard of La Frenz before. But after having the chance to taste
it, and combined with just the right foods, I ordered a case directly from
the winery. Why search when you know what you want?"

"I prefer this intimate, high quality event to the big wine festivals. It
combines all the things I love in one tasty event - the dance company,
specialty foods and unique wines that are difficult to find."

"The focus on expert selections that can purchased locally is a great way to
go. I like the chance to support BC businesses and a non-profit dance
company at the same time."

"Being a big fan of the arts, I was always familiar with battery opera. Wasn't aware of Les Amis till the recent fund raiser. Now I'm a big arts AND cheese fan!"

"I love cheese. My wife loves dance. Her mom loves wine. To all of our delight, we've found an event that pleases us all! Keep up the great work and all of us are already looking forward to your next event!"

"My friends and I have been looking for a venue with the selection and offerings you provide, so to our delight, we were so pleased to have discovered this event and the location. The fact we get to support local businesses and take in some culture is a bonus."
