Plan to attend Chef Meets Grape, the largest annual tasting of BC VQA wines in Vancouver, where over 75 BC wineries will be on hand to share their new fall releases along with 300+ award-winning Wines of British Columbia. Each featured wine will be delectably paired with 12 locally inspired dishes from top BC restaurants.
Enjoy fresh Ocean Wise shellfish from the critic’s choice raw bar and discover why BC food is designed for BC wine!
With regionality as this year’s theme, the restaurants will compete for the honour of “Judges’ Choice” with appetizer-sized portions of dishes using BC ingredients, paired with their select BC VQA wines. For up-to-date event details, visit Wine BC.
