The GOODS from Cafe Medina
Vancouver BC | Café Medina will help winemaker Domaine Chandon celebrate its 45th anniversary by breaking out the bubbles as the downtown brunch destination welcomes the Napa Valley vintner for an exclusive ‘Sparkling Supper’ dinner on Monday, November 5.
The event, which marks Medina’s new exclusive partnership with the Golden State winery, begins with a stand-up reception at 6:30 p.m. showcasing Medina Bar Manager Marc Slingsby-Jones’ original Last Flight cocktail featuring gin, green Chartreuse, lavender syrup and Chandon California Brut. Guests will then enjoy a three-course seated meal prepared by Executive Chef Chris West and paired with a variety of Chandon’s sparkling wines.
The dinner will also feature a special guest in Laura Fontaine, who was born and raised in the historic home of Malbec Cahors and worked in the vineyards of southwestern France before taking on the role of Assistant Winemaker with Domaine Chandon in Yountville, CA.
