BC Wine Brunch at Boulevard

On Saturday, we were invited to the last BC Wine Brunch as part of Dine Out Vancouver at the beautiful Boulevard Kitchen and Oyster Bar. Set in their private room, 7 of BC’s top wineries lined the elegant space as guests were able to mingle and taste different wines. Delicious seafood-focused dishes created by Executive Chef Alex Chen who was the 2015 Gold Medal Plates BC Champion were passed around.

Our other favourite wines included Church & State Wines Coyote Bowl Chardonnay as well as Tantalus Vineyards JuvenilesPinot Noir. If you are planning an upcoming brunch, be sure to offer some BC wines as they pair so well with food. What is your favourite BC Wine with brunch?
