The GOODS from Fraîche
West Vancouver, BC |Fraîche Restaurant is pleased to present a very special Painted Rock Wine Dinner on May 9, hosted by the proprietor of Painted Rock Winery, John Skinner. Guests will enjoy a five-course regional meal created by Fraîche’s new executive chef, Carol Chow, and expertly paired with the Okanagan estate winery’s finest wines. The evening begins at 6:30pm. Tickets are $135 per person (plus taxes and gratuity) and reservations may be made by calling 604.925.7595.
Painted Rock is considered by some to be more than a winery; it is an extension of the Skinner family. John and Trish Skinner are intent on making iconic wines that will be savoured by generations to come. The name Painted Rock refers to the ancient pictographs that were found painted on the rocks behind the vineyard bluffs. The winery sits on a spectacular bench overlooking the eastern shore of Skaha Lake in Penticton. This 60-acre property has a unique microclimate that is particularly suited to the production of premium wines. The primary influence on the Painted Rock grapes is the cool air that flows down from the mountains. With the sun bouncing off the lake, the reflection impacts the fruit, especially the Malbec and Petite Verdot varietals that gain complexity and colour from the magnified light. This reinforces the saying that great wines are produced near great waters. With more sunlight hours than neighbouring wineries, Painted Rock is literally drenched in light.
