This evening I am going to a complimentary dinner and wine pairing event at Hakkasan Bistro. Hakkasan is partnering with Canada Berries Winery (formerly Sanduz Estate Wines) to jointly host a Hakka inspired Chinese feast paired with award-winning BC fruit wines and VQA Ice Wines.
First stop of the evening was at the Canada Berry Winery where I learned about the BC fruit wine business.
The first wine I really enjoyed was the cranberry wine. A strong scent of alcohol comes off the glass. The taste was quite dry comparable to a cranberry juice – leaving that dry taste in your mouth. I quite enjoyed it. To be clear though, it does not taste anything like cranberry juice – it is clearly wine.
Next stop will be the Hakkasan Bistro over on No 5 Road.
