If you’ve not yet been to an event at the Jewel Ballroom off Granville Street, you’re in for a treat! The views over False Creek are fabulous, perfect for clinking glasses and sampling nibbles with friends.

The festive event will include DJs, a graffiti artist, and over 30 wineries, celebrating Argentine culture. Your ticket will help benefit the BC Hospitality Foundation’s Tip Out To Help Campaign.

Argentina is the world’s fifth largest wine producer and has developed a reputation for creating approachable and food-friendly wines. This is your evening to learn about the region’s wines and take notes on your favourite pours.
