1st Place Finisher -Church and State Quintessential 2011
Looking for the perfect gift for the "red wine" lover in your life...look no further


7:00 DINNER $135 plus GST

Six of the very best red meritage blends made in BC as judged by 90 tasters at the 7th Annual SIP Wines BC Iconic Red Wines Tasting on November 13.

The Wines: Church and State Quintessential 2011, Poplar Grove Legacy 2009, Hester Creek The Judge 2011, Black Hills Nota Bene 2012, Clos Du Soleil Signature Red 2012 and NK'Mip Mer'r'iym 2010. These are 6 of the top 7 finishers.

The reception wine will be Terravista Fandango 2013.

If you were to order any of these wines in the usual course at a restaurant, you would pay up to $150, just for the wine.

The wines will be meticulously paired with 5 courses created by Tapenade Bistro in Steveston, where we can always count on Vince Morlet and his team to provide perfectly exceptional food and service. A warning to non-carnivores, the food pairing will high on protein - expect dishes each consisting of beef, lamb, duck and/or venison.

We are honoured to have John Schreiner, Canada's most authoritative wine writer at this event to offer some wisdom and wit.

The menu will be available in due course.

This event makes a wonderful gift for someone you care about or for yourself.
