For the past three years, the hotel has hosted their iconic Winemakers Long Table Dinner series. As a result of new health guidelines, the hotel has had to change the way they organize their long table-style dinners, removing the shared table setting and creating a more intimate, exclusive winemaker’s dinner with individual tables in the Grand Lobby.
Guests are invited to experience the culinary delights of local BC winemakers in a socially distanced oceanside setting. Each winemaker’s dinner begins with guests personally seated by masked hotel staff to their individual table, with views overlooking the Seaside Gardens. Throughout the evening, guests will enjoy four courses prepared by Executive Chef Kreg Graham with British Columbia wines presented and poured by guest winemakers and/or winery owners.
Dinners are scheduled for August 13 and 27, September 10 and 21, and October 8 and 22, 2020, with doors opening at 6:45pm and the winemaker’s welcome beginning at 7:00pm. Tickets for each dinner are $149 Cdn per person, plus tax.
Individual, socially distanced tables can be booked for groupings of 2 to 6 people, to ensure we maintain the provincial health guidelines and physical distancing protocols of the hotel. Seating is limited to 20 guests, and advance ticket purchases are mandatory. A minimum purchase of two tickets is required, with tickets pre-purchased online. Ticket sales will not be available at the door. No more than 6 guests per reservation.
SEPTEMBER 21 | Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards
The Fitzpatrick estate vineyard features 40 acres of vines separated into 12 smaller, carefully-tended blocks. They grow seven varietals in their vineyard: Chardonnay, Ehrenfelser, Gewürztraminer, Meunier, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Riesling, and not by accident. They arrived at the decision to focus on traditional method sparkling wine, crisp whites, and elegant, focused reds over the course of twenty years of listening carefully to the story their land has to tell.
