Last Chance for Wine Lovers at La Terrazza Event

May 12th, 2009 · No Comments

Wanted pass this last minute dining and wine opportunity along. I haven’t reviewed La Terrazza for yet, but I have been there for dinner many times in a former life and was always tremendously satisfied with the quality of the food and the overall dining experience. This particular event looks like it might be fabulous.

If anyone out there does attend, please drop us a line and let us know how it was!


Please find below information on a May 14th wine dinner at La Terrazza in Vancouver that includes rare, library (no longer released) Duckhorn Vineyards wines from 1996, 1997 and 1998. This dinner, priced at $199 per person features wines valued at well over $400 a bottle and is a once in a lifetime opportunity to taste some of these selections.
