7th Annual Chef Meets Grape – Get Your Tickets

One of the most popular BC wine events is the annual ChefMeetsGrape.  The 7th Annual edition of this popular event here in Vancouver on Sept. 22.  Many wine events are wine with bread and cheese.  This event is excellent because restaurants will be serving appetizers paired with a BC VQA wine(s).  Also, you have so many BC wineries from across BC here in one place.  It is a great way to try wines that you may only have a chance to try if you drive to their winery.  Take advantage of having the wineries come to you.

Here is the announcement and details.  Enjoy!


ChefMeetsGrape, the largest annual celebration of BC VQA wines and local food, is once again coming to Vancouver! On Thursday, September 22, 75 BC wineries will be sharing their new fall releases, perfectly paired with inspired dishes from top Ocean Wise partner restaurants.

This year, guests will enjoy wines from all of British Columbia’s five designated viticultural areas and sample dishes from top chefs from Vancouver, Whistler and the Okanagan. The restaurants in this year’s event, renowned for their delectable wine and food pairings, will compete for the honour of “Judges Choice”, as they each create appetizer-sized portions of a dish using BC ingredients, paired with their selected BC VQA wine.

New this year is a critics’ choice raw bar (sponsored by the BC Shellfish Growers Association) featuring wine pairings from top BC wine writers and sommeliers.

With over 250 award-winning Wines of British Columbia, 10 mouth-watering dishes, a critics’ choice raw bar, and the sultry sounds of jazz crooner Heidi McCurdy, this is truly an evening you and your tastebuds will never forget!

Organized by the British Columbia Wine Institute (BCWI), Chef Meets Grape is proud to support the Vancouver Aquarium Ocean Wise program with 10% of all proceeds going towards their vital conservation efforts.
