The GOODS from Tuc Craft Kitchen
Vancouver, BC | Tuc Craft Kitchen will give local oenophiles a taste of Oregon’s celebrated Willamette Valley when it welcomes Robert and Ellen Brittan of Brittan Vineyards to the Gastown enclave for an exclusive wine dinner on Sunday, April 14 at 6 p.m.
The one-night-only event will pair Chef/Co-Owner Roy Flemming’s signature brand of rustic comfort food with a selection of rare and prized Brittan Vineyards wines during a five-course menu that includes such dishes as baked ricotta, olive oil, lemon and chives paired with Chardonnay, wild mushroom pâté and rye complemented by Gestalt Block Pinot Noir and roast pork loin farci paired with Cygnus Block Pinot Noir.
Established on a hillside in McMinnville, Oregon in 2004, Brittan Vineyards now encompasses a 128-acre estate and focuses predominantly on Pinot Noir — the flagship grape of the Oregon and Willamette Valley American Viticultural Area — as well as Syrah and Chardonnay.
