Having experienced visits to Township7 in Langley we decided to attend an evening performance of Shakespear's "Taming of the Shrew" presented by Bard in the Valley. We were joined by our good friends Ken and Jane who are fantastic in helping promote our website.
The weather was not promising, with heavy black clouds threatening rain but the air was warm so we decided to chance it. We began the event with a picnic supper of chicken, salads and watermelon along with Township7's Cabernet Sauvignon and Reserve Sauvignon Blanc.
The wineries new tasting room and picnic area are very impressive. The wine bar was crowded but the staff was prepared and provided wonderful service. We were all very impressed by their hospitality.
Prior to the start of the play we met Tesesa Townsley from Festina Lente Farm located across the road from Township 7. She and her husband are currently working towards opening a meadery in the near future.
The play is a modern day version of "Taming of the Shrew" produced by Diane Gendron and directed by Darcy J. Knopp. In this version, the boss of Padua Golf Club has a major problem, she has double booked special events for her two most important clients. It was well done and the energy of the performers was catching.
All in all, it was a fun night with good friends and good wine. Please see Visit to Township7
