Wild Fermentations: A Long-Table Dinner

Saturday, June 29th - 6pm onwards

Join us at Averill Creek for an open-air Long Table experience where we celebrate the wonders of fermentation alongside the release of Brent Rowland’s wines: Joue by Averill Creek Vineyard.

New winemaker Brent Rowland has partnered with pioneer chef Nicholas Waters of Toque Catering to curate a four-course menu exploring the relationship between fermented foods and wild fermented wines.

We will begin with canapés and a sampling of reserve wines at 6pm, and move into a long-table dinner at 7pm on our terrace overlooking the Cowichan Valley. Come celebrate all-things-fermented with us!
