Terroir-focused wineries, craft breweries, cideries, chefs, local restaurants and other gourmands come together in Vancouver for a two-day event called Top Drop – and everyone’s invited.
Top Drop focuses on terroir-influenced, handcrafted wines, and the people behind them, and highlights the importance in farming one’s own fruit and being constantly engaged with grape-growers to ensure sustainability and a high standard of viticultural practices.
The main event, which takes place September 11th at Yaletown’s Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre, gives guests the opportunity to meet with winemakers and reps from participating wineries, craft breweries and cideries, and taste locally-inspired small bites. A Dinner Series on September 10th takes place at top restaurants around Vancouver and Whistler.
For example, the hosted a dinner by Edible Canada is designed to showcase the amazing featured wines from BC, including Alderlea Vineyards, Baillie-Grohman, Blue Grouse Estate Winery and Vineyard, Orofino, and TH Wines. This dinner will be prepared for just 30 guests by Chef Sarah Stewart in Edible Canada’s intimate and private dining space. The menu includes Heirloom Tomato Gaspacho, Sweet Pea Empanada, Seared Albacore Tuna, Two Rivers Rib Eye, and a selection of BC cheeses.
Other participating restaurants include Cinara, Wildebeest and Whistler’s Alta Bistro. Don’t miss out on this event!
