Your professional and passionate foodie tour guide will meet you at a designated spot and lead you to your first stop, the famous Bearfoot Bistro. This bistro is home to not only Canada’s 2008 top chef, Melissa Craig, but also to a record-breaking 15,000-bottle wine cellar. In the cellar, learn how to saber a bottle of Champagne like a pro (in other words, open the bottle with a sword!). Napoleon started the tradition of opening Champagne with a saber in the late 1700s, and your host will teach you how to do it so you can impress at your next dinner party.
From here, make your way to an upscale steakhouse for the evening's select course, plus a blind wine-tasting seminar where you'll find out just how good your palate is. Then head to a warm, inviting Italian eatery for your main course. This restaurant continually wows critics and diners alike, and it always offers a delectable meat, seafood and vegetarian option from which you can choose.
After enjoying the savory portion of your evening, move on to the sweet finale. Stop at Roger's Chocolates for a taste of the icewine truffles, a local favorite, and then finish your tour with the chef's choice seasonal dessert at a casual, chic lounge.
To make this evening even more special, upgrade to include wine pairings, which include a 3-ounce (90-ml) glass of sparkling wine (from the bottle opened during the sabering lesson), a 3-ounce glass of either red or white wine at the next two restaurants, and a 1-ounce (30-ml) glass of BC's famous icewine at the last restaurant. Additional wine, beer and cocktails are available for purchase throughout the tour.
