Earlier this week our team was down in Vancouver and partnered with Details Catering and Chef Mark Filatow for an amazing six course dinner at L’Abattoir in Vancouver.   Chef Lee Cooper and Chef Filatow took turns showcasing the tastes of the Okanagan Wine Festival as each course was paired with wines from Sandhill Wines, Quails’ Gate Family Estate, Summerhill Pyramid Winery and Mission Hill Family Estate.  During the evening, our partners: Synergy Events, Quails’ Gate Family Estate, Mission Hill Family Estate and Manteo Resort Waterfront Hotel & Villas mingled with clients and chatted about future programs in Kelowna.
