For the past three years, the Oak Bay Beach Hotel has hosted their Winemakers Long Table Dinner series to share the culinary delights of local BC winemakers. As a result of new health guidelines, the hotel has had to change the way they organize their long table-style dinners, removing the shared table setting and creating a more intimate dinner with individual tables in the Grand Lobby. 

Each winemaker’s dinner begins with guests personally seated by masked hotel staff to their individual table, with views overlooking the Seaside Gardens. Throughout the evening, guests will enjoy four courses prepared by Executive Chef Kreg Graham with British Columbia wines presented and poured by guest winemakers and/or winery owners. 

Dinners are scheduled for August 13 and 27, with September and October dates to be announced shortly. Doors open at 6:45pm and the winemaker’s welcome begins at 7:00pm. Tickets for each dinner are $149 CDN per person, plus tax. Seating is limited to 24 guests, and advance ticket purchases are mandatory.
