Salud Chile – Advance Tickets to Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival

Have you been thinking about what to buy for someone who has everything for Christmas? or something for yourself?  How about some advance tickets to the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival?

Tickets just went on sale this week.  The advance tickets are LIMITED, so buy them quickly before they are sold out.   Chile is the theme country for the wine festival.  I’ve been to Chile and visited many wineries and I can tell you that they produce fantastic wines and that I’m really looking forward to seeing the wineries here in Vancouver.  Come try some rising stars: Syrah and Carmenere, along with their well-known Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Here is the announcement from the Festival.

Despite nearly 500 years of winemaking, Chile’s wine industry is fresh, young, and boldly evolving to meet the needs of today’s consumers. Chilean styled canapés will pair wonderfully with the exceptional wines from more than 20 wineries while the beats of resident DJ El Garzita will set the mood. Celebrate Chile

Wines of Chile has tasked VCC Executive Chef Blair Rasmussen with the seemingly impossible task of creating a Chilean themed menu to pair with more than 70 Chilean wines. Chef Rasmussen will no doubt rise to the challenge and create some amazing synergies between our own Pacific Northwest cuisine and the wonderful flavours of Chilean dishes. Your challenge will be to try and figure out which wine and food pairing you love most!

Also included in the price of the Salud Chile Theme Region Pack is an evening session in either the Thursday, Friday or Saturday International Festival Tasting.

The Tasting Room offers a unique opportunity to taste rare bottles and discover new treasures as you visit with renowned winery principals from around the globe. At each booth you will find a winery principal, identified by his or her royal blue lanyard. This person is a senior member of the winery, intimately involved in the wine-producing process as a winemaker, proprietor or senior executive. Nowhere else in the world will you find a gathering of these talented men and women pouring wine and answering questions under one roof. Take the opportunity to ask questions and learn from the experts about your favourite wine.


Thursday night’s capacity is guaranteed to be 25 percent lower than the other two evenings, attracting wine collectors and trade professionals who appreciate more room to interact with the winery principals.
 
Friday is great for groups and the after-work crowd looking to kick off the weekend in style.

Saturday night is perfect for couples and friends wanting to spend a night on the town.
