Aura Restaurant and Tinhorn Creek Vineyards Showcase the Abundance of Autumn
On Friday November 9th, Whistler’s lauded Aura Restaurant will celebrate the award-winning wines of Tinhorn Creek Vineyards in an exclusive winemakers’ dinner during Cornucopia: Whistler’s Celebration of Wine and Food.
With a menu inspired by seasonal organic vegetables, Aura Restaurant at Nita Lake Lodge specializes in modern, Pacific cuisine that is rooted in classical culinary craft. Led by Executive Chef Michael Guy, Aura sources sustainably from local farmers, foragers, ranchers and fisheries to bring the best that the west has to offer for every season. The unforgettable menu will feature BC products from both land and sea. Expect rustic flavours and refined technique, paired with award-winning wines from Tinhorn Creek Vineyards. Hosted by Andrew Moon, Tinhorn’s Viticulturist and Vineyard Manager, guests will get insight into Andrew’s unique view from the vineyard.
Executive Chef Michael Guy has created a distinctive five-course menu that highlights the excellence of the Pemberton Valley’s autumn harvestâ€”alongside globally-sourced ingredientsâ€”with each plate married to Tinhorn Creek Vineyards’ prized wines. The reception will be held from 7:00pm – 7:30pm, and the five-course tasting menu at Aura Restaurant starts at 7:30pm. Tickets are $175 per person. Nita Lake Lodge is also offering a package together with a night’s accommodation for $250 per person (based on two people) with the option of an additional night.
