On Friday October 21, 2016 I joined winemaker and owner Homan Hafbaradaran along with Chef Christopher Floyd for an intimate five course dinner that showcased their new menu paired with their premium wine. They joined forces to design a locally sourced custom menu to showcase the wine of City Side Winery.
Known as Vancouver's best new winery, City Side Winery is located in the heart of False Creek. Personally I think that it's a great place for a first date (or second and third!), group tastings, and intimate dinners with friends and family.
The ambiance and beautiful decor truly make this a unique experience and a go to spot.
The menu featured several of Chef Christopher's new items. Check out the menu below!
