In Vino Veneto: Wine Dinner
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
900 Seymour Street
Vancouver , BC
Cibo Trattoria General Manager/Sommelier Robert Stelmachuk and Executive Chef Faizal Kassam will act as tour guides during the dinner series, which kicks off on Wednesday, May 6 with “In Vino Veneto”. This inaugural wine dinner focuses on the Veneto Region of Northeast Italy, where the cool climate of the Alps helps produce whites such as Soave and warmer coastal plains and river valleys produce reds like Valpolicella, Amarone and Bardolino.
The dinner series continues Tuesday, June 2 as Cibo hosts a dinner that highlights the wine and cuisine of Sicily, while the third event, titled “The Anti-Chianti Experience”, takes an atypical approach to wines hailing from Tuscany and is set for Wednesday, July 8. The series culminates with the second annual “Bottle Royal” on Wednesday, Aug. 2 when Cibo hosts a dinner and comparative tasting that will pit some of B.C.’s best wines against varietals from around the globe.
