Episode 28 with Yvonne Turgeon

Yvonne Turgeon is the founder and editor of Thompson Okanagan Trends Magazine. We met for the first time last week at an industry function and we recorded this podcast yesterday (if you are listening to it the day that it is released). You  might remember Okanagan Life magazine and the wine competition that they did in the spring. Trends magazine is bringing that back in a big way this month and Yvonne talks about all of that in this conversation, which takes place over a lovely glass of Hester Creek Ti Amo. If you work or own a winery, there is still time to get your wines entered into this competition.  We end everything with a very unique Big Question that will test your wine knowledge and creativity all at the same time.
