This lunch overlooking the waterfront in Coal Harbour was all about wine. B.C. is home to some of the best wines and food around.

Stag's Hollow is a standout Okanagan winery. We sampled their fine line of mostly reds paired with our meal. There were a few highlights including the Renaissance Pinot Noir 2010, a hit with the crowd of hospitality and lifestyle professionals.

To start things off we gobbled down roasted weathervane scallops (with chanterelle and leek risotto). It went well with the Con-Fusion 2011 blend. Little did we know there were multiple wine pairing per course.

For the main course, the delicious cannon of beef and bacon-wrapped venison loin (with celery root puree, fondant potato, and marchand de vin). The beef was delicious, soft, and moist. I enjoyed the presentation and combination of elements from the meat to sauce and puree.

Everyone conceded the rich taste and flavour of the Cabarnet Franc 2010. A simple dessert of truffle, chocolate covered cream puff, biscotti and chocolate sliver (right).

It was a superb meal for lunch overlooking the waterfront as the food was well prepared, cooked, and presented by Lift complemented by some fine Northern wines.
