    This week we're checking out the shiny new Save-on-Foods in Coquitlam City Centre, where they've created premium grocery experience with made-to-order options and the opportunity, now to pair wine and cider as the chain's 22nd store to sell both. Director of Wine Steve Moriarty is joined by Store Manager Ralph Peragine, Wine Development Specialist Amanda Carnegie, and Paul Cavezza from the meat department, to highlight all of what they offer. We also hear from Liam Berti, winemaker for Backyard Vineyards in Langley, about the specialized products they've made with SOF; he also updates us on harvest in the Fraser Valley; and we hear from Maurice Hamilton, founder and owner of Pacific Breeze Winery, the first urban winery in British Columbia, located a skytrain ride away in New Westminster.

    Anthony is in Lake Country this week, about 30 minutes north of Kelowna, speaking with the team behind O'Rourke Family Estate and sister winery Peak Cellars. We begin with Tanja Martell, Director of Communications, who fills us in on the two wineries, and some of the exciting changes taking place. Stephanie Stanley, winemaker for Peak Cellars, talks about riesling, pinot gris and gewurztraminer; Chef Jay Bennett, gives us an indication of the giant scope of food services that will be operating out of the new winery on Carr's Landing, and his approach to food, enjoyed at a very busy Peak Cellars' Garden Bistro. Dennis O'Rourke, owner and builder of both wineries, shares his vision and updates us on the massive undertaking of O'Rourke Estate Winery. Nikki Callaway, winemaker for O'Rourke Family Estate wines, brings her latest vintage of chardonnay and Anthony is impressed.
