Farm to Table – Farm to Bottle

 

Join That’s Life Gourmet and Farmers Apprentice for the Riesling Edition of our Farm to Bottle dinner series on Monday, March 18th. We are excited to host our first long table dinner in the series, that will be served at Ubuntu Canteen at 4194 Fraser Street in Vancouver.

 

We will be exploring the complexity of the Riesling grape, an excellent example to examine the impact of terroir on wine characteristics and qualities.  Originating from the Rhine region Riesling is now grown on four continents. The Riesling grape produces wines that are dry, semi-sweet, sweet and even sparkling.  As always, the dinner will feature local, seasonal and organic fare, uniquely curated for the wine pairings we are presenting. Seating for the 6-course dinner and wine tasting will begin at 6:30 pm.
