“All great parties end in the kitchen.” Take a wine and food journey through the kitchens of PICA, featuring international wines matched with a small bite prepared by top Vancouver chefs. Each kitchen highlights a wine-and-food pairing, with the chef and winery principal sharing insights on what makes this pairing perfect.
Parking is available first-come, first-served at 1515 West 2nd Island Cove with nine spots on your left as your drive into the covered parking and a further 30 more parking spots located down one level in the underground. We strongly encourage you to take transit or a taxi, however.
