VANCOUVER – The Blue Water Café, one of Vancouver’s most celebrated restaurants, will play host to two of Italy’s premier wineries in two exclusive winemaker’s dinners in October: the illustrious Tenuta Luce della Vita from Montalcino in Tuscany and Piedmont’s revolutionary La Spinetta.
“Our team is very honoured to host these two world-renowned marques,” said wine director, Andrea Vescovi. “Luce is one of the most innovative projects in the Montalcino wine region and La Spinetta represents the forward edge of Italian wine-making. Both producers are favourites of mine and will always have a special place on our wine list.”
Executive chef Frank Pabst will prepare two custom multi-course tasting menus designed to marry both the intensity and the nuances of each portfolio. The Luce dinner will take place October 26, followed by the Spinetta supper, November 25.
In addition to showcasing the highly rated wine portfolios, Marchese Leonardo de’s Frescobaldi will speak to the wines of Luce, while La Spinetta’s Giorgio Rivetti will articulate his family’s commitment to naturally low-yields through bio-dynamic growing practices.
