“Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle.” Well said Paulo Coelho. We couldn’t agree with you more!

whistler cornucopia festival

Whistler Cornucopia, an annual celebration of food and wine takes place from November 7-17, 2013, and we couldn’t be more excited! Food and wine lovers will unite, and take part in interesting seminars, marvel at the masterpiece on the end of their forks, and attend gala tasting events and legendary after parties. Much more than just wine-swirlers declaring “my Pinot Noir is fruity on the nose, with notes of stewed rhubarb, fig, dried rose petals, and orange,” Cornucopia has something for everyone.

House Party is a perfect entry level event, and will kick off the Festival on November 7, 2013 at the Whistler Conference Centre from 6PM-9PM. Now recognized as one of the hottest events of the year, House Party combines live music with local foods and domestic wines. It’s a bit more casual, like a backyard BBQ, but with home-grown vodka, mico-brewed beer and much more from our land of plenty.
