ChefmeetsBCGrape, the largest annual celebration of BC VQA wines and local food, is once again coming to Vancouver! On Thursday, September 20, 75 BC wineries will be sharing more than 300 wines, perfectly paired with regional dishes from top Ocean Wise partner restaurants, and showcasing why BC food is designed for BC wine.
This year, guests will enjoy wines from across British Columbia’s and sample dishes from top chefs in Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and the Okanagan. With regionality as this year’s theme, the restaurants in this year’s event will compete for the honour of “Judges Choice” with appetizer-sized portions of a dish using BC ingredients, paired with their select BC VQA wine. Back again is the fan-favourite raw bar, sponsored by BC Shellfish Growers Association, featuring wine pairings perfect for fresh BC seafood.
Organized by the British Columbia Wine Institute (BCWI), ChefmeetsBCGrape is proud to support the Vancouver Aquarium Ocean Wise program with part proceeds assisting their vital conservation efforts. Tickets are $75 (plus HST & s/c).
