For the first episode of season 4, the Cupboard is pleased to welcome Nelson Boschman to speak with us about his book, The Growing Season, and to lead us in an informative wine tasting. A pastor, teacher, and musician, Nelson considers himself a wine enthusiast rather than an expert. He sees in the vineyard and wine-making the stuff of life and spirit.

We hear some of Nelson’s story, about concepts of identity and challenge and change that are present in wine-making and in the spiritual life. We see, in Nelson’s love of the vineyard and the process, that often the most enduring spiritual lessons come in paying close attention to the things that we love.

Tasting Notes:

We learned a great deal from Nelson about the ways we can experience and enjoy wine.

“80% of the wine experience is olfactory, it happens through the sense of smell. To look, swirl, sniff are the first three steps to taste.”

The wines we tasted on today’s episode are both available at BC Liquor Stores. The first was the 2018 Cairanne from Boutinot and the 2020 Gigondas from Dom Brusset, both from the Rhone region in France.
