This spring, come celebrate the wines of the Golden State with two wine inspired dinners hosted at Siena Restaurant on Tuesday, April 21 (now sold out!) and Wednesday, April 22. Siena has been one of our long time restaurant partners and it’s the perfect spot to dine before a show at the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage, so we’re thrilled to be co-hosting these events. Siena’s Executive Chef, Jessica Howery will deliver a decadent meal full of Mediterranean flavours, expertly paired with some of the best wines California has to offer.
Limited spots are available for this exclusive event. Tickets are $160, and include a partial tax receipt. Please contact Gigi Wong, Special Events Manager, at 604.687.5315, ext. 248 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seats today!
The menu for the evening is as follows:
Tomato gazpacho, pickled cucumber, avocado mousse
Langoustine “thermidor” with tarragon, fennel & cracked pepper slaw, garlic sourdough crouton
Veal “Wellington” with cherry duxelle, dried fruit & walnut crumble, zinfandel reduction
Cherry smoked brisket, pomegranate braise, rutabaga puree, charred endive
Kahlua & dark chocolate semifreddo, cocoa tuille
The evening will start in style with a California-themed cocktail featuring E & J Gallo Winery vodka. The brand ambassador for the wineries will be providing industry insights for guests to better understand and enjoy the wines. Here is the complete wine list:
Edna Valley Vineyard 2012 Chardonnay
This chardonnay displays an attractive bouquet of quince, pineapple, white peach and apricot, with underlying notes of brown spice and vanilla. A fresh mouthfeel and a bright acidity combine to form a long, pleasing finish in this medium-bodied wine.
Ghost Pines 2012 Red Blend
This exceptional red showcases the complexity and balance that the right combination of the right grapes can achieve. Aromas of blueberry and blackberry pie are framed nicely by salted caramel, spice and truffle notes. Rich and full-bodied, this blend offers chewy tannins and a long, luscious finish.
Louis M. Martini Winery 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine exhibits a deep burgundy colour with aromas of dark fruit, smoky cedar and dried herbs. Concentrated flavours of black cherry and blackberry are framed nicely by cedar and toasted oak on the finish. Rich and broad in the mouth, this wine has a long finish with an expansive palate.
