Hosted by Master of Wine Rhys Pender, dinner guests have the rare opportunity to hear about the wines directly from the winemaker and/or proprietor over a lavish five course meal (with eight paired wines)! These are THE authentic characters of BC wine - the owners and winemakers themselves will be on hand with first-hand knowledge and personal stories to share with fortunate guests.
Chef Tom Lee looked to the abundance of fall harvest across Canada for inspiration in developing this special menu – one as characterful and unique as the wines and personalities themselves.
