Summer 2019 Wine + cider Dinners

This summer we will be hosting Special Event dinners, celebrating the products of 4 special places in the Cowichan Valley: Enrico Winery, Blue Grouse Estate Winery, Alderlea Vineyards and the Valley Cider Company. The prices and menus of each event will be updated on this page closer to the date.

There will only be 25 guest spaces available for each dinner, and the rest of the bar will be closed for the event, so reservations are required.

Menus for each event are to be added below the poster.
