Edible Canada: Dine with the Characters of BC Wine - September 19, 2012

Enjoy the full wine country experience – in the city! 
BC VQA winemakers and winery proprietors will be at Edible Canada on Wednesday, September 19 for an intimate wine-paired dinner to discuss their latest fall releases.

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.
