The Australian Wine Appreciation Society graciously reached out to BCWAS last year to arrange a friendly dinner with AWAS, featuring wines from both BC and Australia. BCWAS enthusiastically agreed, and we have been working together on the details since then.
Members from both Societies will be attending. Each Society has come up with one wine per course. These wines are all currently available in the local marketplace, so this event affords you the ability to taste some really great wines and then add your favorites to your cellar!
Hosted by the Listel Hotel with food prepared by the attached, acclaimed Forage Restaurant, the four course menu will begin with reception sparkling and take us on a homegrown journey from sea to land. We are very grateful for the excellent pairing menu that Executive Chef Welbert Choi has created for us all - no small challenge given the ten different wines to be kept in mind! Our BCWAS Cellarmaster focused on sourcing wines from across the province, representing five different sub-appellations including Vancouver Island and Lillooet, plus the Okanagan, Thompson, and Similkameen Valleys. Not only do the wines represent a cross-section of BC, but all are highly acclaimed, award-winning selections still available for sale!
This will be a memorable event. Due to the limited number of seats available, this event will be "Members Only" at first. Guest seats may open up in time, but register soon to avoid disappointment!
