Comments 257

Food, wine, a pairing dinner, craft beer, bubbles, brunch, and those gorgeous eastern Vancouver Island sunrise views. The 9th annual Parksville Uncorked Food and Wine Festival is happening February February 23 to 26, 2017 at Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort and The Beach Club Resort.

Parksville Uncorked

This high-spirited, decadent weekend usually sells out so act fast to scoop up your tickets and plan your time at Uncorked! Signature events include:

Parksville Untapped
Thursday, February 23, 2017

Thursday night’s event at Tigh-Na-Mara shines a spotlight on regional breweries, cideries and distilleries along with samples of distinctive regional dishes.

Friday, February 24, 2017

The Signature Swirl Wine Tasting at The Beach Club gives you a crack at 100 wineries and delectables from the kitchens of Executive Chef Rick Davidson, of the resort’s Pacific Prime Restaurant, and Executive Chef Eric Edwards, of Cedar’s Restaurant and Lounge at Tigh-Na-Mara.

Winemakers’ Dinners
Saturday, February 25, 2017

Saturday offers the chance to dine with one of two BC winemakers and experience their bottles with extraordinary food prepared to complement it by the fine chefs at one of the two host resorts.

Bubbles & Brunch
Sunday, February 26, 2017

Bubbles always signify festivity, and Parksville Uncorked invariably likes to go out on a high note. So wrap up your weekend with Bubbles & Brunch at either The Beach Club or Tigh-Na-Mara.

I have been to Parksville Uncorked twice, and it was the perfect event for each trip. The first was during our 5th wedding anniversary a few years ago, which was an incredibly romantic getaway. The second was with my sister last year for a girls weekend. Again, it was a balanced and relaxing weekend by the sea with really fun wine and food themed events.
