ABOUT TOBIAS GRIGNON
Tobias Grignon was born on Gabriola island, one of the beautiful Gulf Island chain nestled in the Georgia Straight. He grew up in a vegetarian, socially conscious and food-oriented household with a massive backyard garden. The garden taught him to look forward to the bounty of spring and summer from an early age, and his favourite ingredients all hail from his memories of the family garden; fava beans, tomatoes, sweet peas, and rhubarb. Tobias first developed an interest in cooking when he learned to make bread at age 11. After highschool, he went straight to cooking school at the Vancouver Island University, and moved to Vancouver in 2000 for his first cooking job. Tobias’ experience ranges from Mammie Taylor’s to Bistro Pastis with stops at the Empress and Wedgewood along the way. His cooking style is all about the ingredients, making him the perfect chef for a seasonal seafood feast.
ABOUT ORGANIC OCEANS
We are independent West Coast fishermen who believe a balance must be maintained between our traditional way of life and the impact on the fisheries. By adopting ocean-friendly, sustainable and responsible harvesting practices, we are providing the finest seafood to those who care about what they eat and who want to ensure the long term health of the resource for the benefit of future generations.
While our fish and shellfish are coveted by the leading chefs who are determined to make environmentally friendly seafood choices and select sustainable options and the finest ingredients for their menus, our seafood isn’t for everyone. For those who don’t value quality, traceability and the environment, there are alternatives.
The choice is yours.
ABOUT OKANAGAN CRUSH PAD
Our aim is to produce distinct, terroir-focused super-premium wines from the Okanagan Valley and to provide a range of services to aid in the development, production, marketing, and sale of proprietary wines.
THE CRUSH PAD
We have created a high-end 35,000 case, small lot custom winemaking facility with the resources and expertise to take product from field to market – including branding, marketing, communications and distribution and sales. We welcome clients, be they vineyard owners or other wineries who wish to establish their own wine brand or to use our equipment to make an exclusive new wine.
The 7,750 square foot Okanagan Crush Pad Winery is located on a 10-acre property in Summerland, BC, known as Switchback Vineyard. The winery is located at the north-west corner of the property and is built partially underground. The facility is only open to the public seasonally, and is designed as a co-working space for winemakers to work side by side to share ideas and to collaborate. The design aesthetic ‘less is more’ is expressed in the state-of-the-art wine cellar with exceptional wine as the outcome. The look is clean, crisp, and modern.
Tantalus was established in 2004 when Proprietor Eric Savics was presented with the opportunity to acquire one of the Okanagan Valley’s premier vineyard properties. Originally known as Pioneer Vineyards, the site was first planted to table grapes in 1927 by renowned, local horticulturist JW Hughes.
With its spectacular lake views, historic old vineyard and new state-of-the-art LEED winery, visiting Tantalus is a one of a kind experience. Enjoy premium, single vineyard wines in a stunning, gallery-style tasting room, surrounded by works of art from some of Canada’s most highly-acclaimed artists.
Bella is a sparkling wine house focused on single vineyard expressions of Chardonnay, a classic Champagne grape, and Gamay Noir, an under-appreciated BC grape. Being BC’s only winery exclusively dedicated to sparkling wine, Bella produces natural sparkling wines of exceptional quality using the traditional and ancestrale methods.
Sparkling wine, by nature, invokes emotions associated with special occasions. At Bella every day brings little wins, moments of joy, and a life worth rewarding. Why wait?
