Vancouver, BC—The Arts Club’s ChefmeetsBCGrape fundraising series returns this September with three entertaining evenings that will feature fine BC wines and delectable cuisine pairings as well as incredible access to world-class winemakers and highly-trained chefs.
These events will be social, lively, and informative, and offer the perfect opportunity to showcase both the flourishing wine industry and innovative fine dining establishments in the province. All proceeds will benefit the Arts Club’s community engagement initiatives and youth-focused education programs.
The series opens with the ChefmeetsBCGrape Signature Tasting, which will feature an extensive selection of BC’s award-winning wines perfectly paired with dishes created by top BC chefs. The events continue with two more intimate evenings: the Uncorked Kitchen Party, a new event dedicated to the prolific Oliver and Osoyoos wine region followed by the decadent Mission Hill Family Estate Dinner. This final event will showcase reserve labels from the flagship Okanagan winery, accompanied by a menu of classic French-inspired cuisine.
