VSO Sweet Fortified

The Vancouver Symphony Ball is the VSO’s signature annual fundraising gala and widely considered to be the premier social event of the season in Vancouver. This year the 26th Annual event will be held on January 21, 2016 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West.

Fine food and wine abound and the entire Vancouver Symphony Orchestra is front and centre for the guests listening and dancing enjoyment—a truly remarkable and unique experience. Vancouver’s philanthropic community has significantly supported this event and last year helped to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Symphony Ball bringing the grand total of funds raised to over $10million. Funds raised at the Ball are used to support the annual activities of the VSO from presenting 150 passionate, high-quality concerts each year to delivering 13 inspirational education programs that reach more than 50,000 children annually. Now that’s something you can be very proud to be a part of—helping to enrich and transform lives through music.

Monteraponi 2005 Vin Santo 375ml

Sadly, it is rare to find Vin Santo in the B.C. market these days.  A combination of price with the struggle for sweet wines to be fashionable.   A tiny amount of this wine is made annually, and the concentration, length and intensity of...
