The evening will feature over 90 BC wineries pouring over 350 award-winning wines with a variety of restaurants pairing sweet and savoury dishes to show off the best in our region.
Last year’s runner-up for Best BC VQA Pairing, Torafuku Modern Asian Eatery, returns to compete against this year’s participating restaurants Chicha Restaurant, Coast Coal Harbour Hotel, Fable Kitchen, Grouse Mountain Resort, Hart House Restaurant, Lift Bar and Grill, Miradoro Restaurant, Provence Marinaside, Vancouver Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel and Westin Bayshore.
Restaurant creations will be paired with notable wines from Desert Hills Estate Winery, Misconduct Wine Co., Moon Curser Vineyards and Quails’ Gate Winery, among others.
“We are excited to be partnering again with the Arts Club for our largest BC VQA wine and culinary consumer event of the year,” says Laura Kittmer, Media Relations Manager of the BC Wine Institute.
“This event is a great opportunity for consumers to taste new releases from top BC wineries and experience the versatility of 100 per cent BC wine through exciting pairings created and prepared by some of Vancouver’s favourite restaurants.”
A silent auction will include premium BC wines, luxury goods, and entertainment and travel packages. This is the Arts Club’s signature fall fundraiser, with all proceeds from ticket sales and auction packages to benefit the development of new Canadian plays and staging world-class theatre created by Vancouver artists.
