The highly anticipated annual Spring Wine Release event, WINE FOR WAVES, by the Naramata Bench Wineries Association in partnership with the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program is Thursday, April 28. Set at the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver from 7 to 9:30 pm, all proceeds to benefit Ocean Wise. Clearly, it’s a great time to be in Vancouver.
You’ll be able to indulge in delicious wines paired with fabulous Ocean Wise food while supporting an important cause. Get your tickets now, $110 each, at www.vanaqua.org/wineforwaves and be among the first to taste the just released spring wines from the Naramata Bench. Meet winemakers and owners, enjoy fabulous Ocean Wise food pairings, and bid on exclusive Naramata wines and experiences, with all proceeds going to support the Ocean Wise programs.
Sample culinary offerings from YEW seafood + bar; Mosquito, Fanny Bay Oyster Bar, Vancouver Fish Company, Vancouver Aquarium; and the Naramata Bench’s own Hillside Winery Bistro, Red Rooster’s Pecking Room Grill, Poplar Grove Winery’s The Vanilla Pod and Upper Bench Winery and Creamery. Oh, how I wish I could join you!
In addition to getting to sample those great Naramata wines there, this year Legacy Liquor Store will be at the event. WINE FOR WAVES attendees will be able to purchase Naramata wines to take home with them with a percentage of the sales profit donated to Ocean Wise.
