Parksville Uncorked

Submitted by on January 3, 2013 – 7:50 pmNo Comment

For a celebration of wine, brews and the best of local Vancouver Island cuisine, it’s time to come uncorked in Parksville, British Columbia, Canada (map).

February 21 through 24, 2013, marks the fifth annual Parksville Uncorked Wine & Food Festival, a mid-winter fête that pairs the province’s wines and craft beers with menus from the Island’s restaurants, resorts and specialty food purveyors.

Parksville Untapped at Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort kicks off the revelry by matching frothy craft beers and bold ciders with sweet and savory morsels, while the Swirl Gala promises an opportunity to kick up your heels at The Beach Club Resort, where 28 wineries will be represented alongside gourmet bites and delectable nibbles.

Should you prefer to sit while you sip, two winemakers’ dinners will break out the good china: Tigh-Na-Mara’s Executive Chef Eric Edwards will serve five courses to complement Road 13 vintages while The Beach Club’s Executive Chef Rick Davidson will join forces with Burrowing Owl’s Chris Wyse to pair local offerings with the winery’s reds and whites.

To wrap the multi-day fest, you can raise your glass during the Tigh-Na-Mara Sunday Bubble Brunch before heading out for tours to local farms, cheesemakers and The Deep Bay Marine Field Station.
