A few weeks ago I was invited to the Stag’s Hollow Fall wine release at Lift Bar and Grill in Coal Harbour. With a stunning view on a gorgeous end of summer day, the chef’s team paired a 4 course luncheon with the wines from Stag’s Hollow.
Roasted Weathervane Scallops with Chanterelle & Leek Risotto
paired with Viognier 2010, GVM 2011, Renaissance Pinot Noir 2010
Mesclun Greens, Caramelized Pear Vinaigrette, Candied Pecans, Chevre Crumble
paired with Renaissance Sauvignon Blanc 2011, Con-Fusion 2011
Cannon of Beef and Bacon-Wrapped Venison Loin, Celery Root Puree, Fondant Potato, Glazed Carrots, Braised Cippolini Onions, Marchand de Vin
paired with Cabernet Franc 2010, Heritage Block 2009, Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, Syrah 2010
Truffles & Biscotti
Lunch was delicious and I was very impressed by the menu pairings, it was the best meal I had at Lift Bar & Grill in years, kudos goes out to the chefs in that kitchen. My favourite wine was the Cabernet Franc 2010 ($27.99 bottle) and the pairing was full of blackberries and morello cherries mingled with smokey oak notes.
Stag’s Hollow is located in the South Okanagan Valley.
Lift Bar & Grill is located at 333 Menchions Mews in Coal Harbour.
