There is some sort of a food-related “Day’ everyday throughout the year. I guess the ideas come mostly from trade marketers and retail associations to promote products, events and causes. As a food and wine enthusiast, I have no problem with that.
Past March 27 happened to be the National Paella Day, an excellent reason to enjoy Spanish grubs and wines. The restaurant of choice was Espana Restaurant on Denmen Street and the two wines to go with dinner were from Liberado recently made available in BC. Both wines are available at most private liquor stores and will likely be at BC liquor stores soon.
Originated from Spain, Liberado Wines is well received in Quebec and so they saw this to be the perfect opportunity to introduce these two wines to BC consumers. Meaning liberated, freedom in Spanish, Liberado signifies the spirit of the winery to craft delicious wines with flair and without boundary.
