On October 21 I attended a wonderful event at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Gardens presented by House Wine featuring over 50 wines from New Zealand paired with Asian dishes from 6 Asian restaurant in Vancouver.
Fresh and pure, the wines of New Zealand have established themselves as incredibly food friendly. Home to some of the world’s best Asian food, Vancouver is blessed with a colourful and diverse palette of flavours. Some of the city’s top Asian restaurants each created a dish to pair with the vibrant wines of New Zealand. Kingyo Izakaya, Maenam, Palki Restaurant, Sura Korean Cuisine, The Union and Zest Japanese Cuisine were the restaurants featured.
From Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling to Pinot Noir and more, it was a chance to explore a variety of combinations at this stand up, grazing event. Kia ora and Kanpai!
House Wine presents many wine events through out the year, you can find them online.
