VANCOUVER URBAN WINERY: GOOD PLACE FOR CHILLING OUT

Share on Google Plus

A few hours after lunch I ran out of idea where to go with my parents. My friend highly recommended this place before so I decided to take my parents out here. Vancouver Urban Winery is a boutique winery located in Railtown, two blocks East of Gastown. They produce 700 cases of wine per year and their tasting room has 36 wine taps where you can taste the in-house brands and wines produced from other wineries in BC. 
My parents got Sommelier's Choice Wine Flights ($12) which included 2 white, 1 rose and 2 red wines all produced in BC. They really enjoyed trying out different types of wines selected by our sommelier. Because of the hot weather I got a glass of pilsner instead.
For wine paring, we got delicious Seared Scallops with Terrato + Bacon Jam ($16) which consisted of Cauliflower Puree, Pickled Mushrooms and Crispy Kale Chips. It tasted amazingly good. Regardless of its small portion, it definitely deserves its price. The scallops were very fresh and I loved the puree as well as a hint of enoki mushrooms.
Our second dish was Flank Steak with Chimichurri ($14) which had slices of medium steak with sprouts, malbec molasses and chimichurri (Argentinan green sauce made of finely-chopped parsley, minced garlic, olive oil, oregano and white vinegar) on top. As I am not a big fan of steak, I didn't really enjoy the meat itself but I loved all other ingredients they used for this dish. It had interesting flavours that blended well with the steak. My parents loved it.
For the third dish, we got Yam Gnocchi with Lamb Ragu ($16) but it was way too salty that we couldn't stand another bite.
Overall, I loved their food and wine flights as well. This place is definitely a good place for chilling out :)
