Le Vieux Pin at Killjoy

Comments 38 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I was recently asked what my favourite events were to cover and aside from concerts, awards ceremonies, and community festivals (especially those I partner with as a sponsor), I have to say that pairing dinners are near the top of my list.

In addition to a lovely dinning experience with my husband at one of Vancouver’s remarkable restaurants, these events often showcase local ingredients and the chefs that highlight them on their plates. They also shine a spotlight on our province’s wine regions like the South Okanagan. There just happens to be one of these events taking place in Yaletown on Tuesday and I’d love to send one lucky Miss604 reader and a guest to take part.

What: Meat the Grape Pairing Dinner Series with Le Vieux Pin

Where: Killjoy (1120 Hamilton Street)

When: Tuesday, November 13, 2012 from 7:00pm to 11:00pm

Details: Killjoy will be serving two styles of Le Vieux Pin wine along with a special selection from the winemaker. Rasoul Salehi, general manager of Le Vieux Pin and sister winery LaStella will be leading the evening and sharing his knowledge and passion for South Okanagan grapes.

Tickets are on sale now for $30 for this event that includes a multi-course charcuterie sampling dinner (from Donnelly Group development chef Alvin Pillay) with wine pairings.

Here’s how you can win your way into this event:

  • Leave a comment on this post naming your favourite wine pairing (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
