Win Tickets to Chef Meets BC Grape

Comments 105 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Chef Meets BC Grape is the largest tasting of BC VQA wines in Western Canada. Now in its 13th year, this event is a multi-city event series happening in Calgary (sold out), Victoria (May 23) and Vancouver (May 25) designed to celebrate the best of BC Wine and food – highlighting all things grown, crushed, raised and produced in BC.

Chef Meets BC Grape

Where: Vancouver Convention Centre East (999 Canada Place, Vancouver)
When: Thursday, May 25, 2017 7:00pm to 9:30pm
Tickets: Available online now for $90 (Vancouver)

As many as 90 BC wineries will be in Vancouver to pour more than 350 BC VQA wines for attendees, and 68 BC wineries will pour more than 250 BC VQA wines in Victoria showcasing their 2017 spring releases. During these fun and informative walk-around tastings, guests will have the opportunity to compare a variety of exquisite wines representing the distinct growing regions of the Okanagan Valley, Similkameen Valley, Vancouver Island, Fraser Valley, as well as some of BC’s exciting emerging regions.

Chefs from top BC restaurants will compete in a pairing challenge, featuring the finest locally grown and sourced ingredients, to earn awards for Judges’ Best BC VQA Pairing, Judges’ Best Dish Award, and Consumers’ Choice Award for Dish of the Night.

This 100 per cent BC-inspired fundraising event brings together the creative talents of winemakers and chefs from around the province to celebrate the best of local wine and cuisine. It also supports local charities with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Ocean Wise, The Arts Club and the BC Hospitality Foundation.
