Earlier this week, I attended the Apothic White launch at 319 Main, hosted by Dunn PR. This was the first time that the wine was being poured in BC. It's a blend of Chardonnay, Riesling and Moscato. To showcase the wine, A Moveable Feast (which catered another wine launch earlier this year) provided catering to pair with both the White as well as Apothic Red.
This was a logo in front of the DJ's booth, very chic and the lighting of the logo was perfect for the event space.
And this really should be how all dinner parties start...lots of wine, some candles and a mask, of course!
Fred About Town was the host of the evening and got us all excited to taste and sample the wines and yummy treats. He encouraged us to go to the Sensation Booth to see if we could pick out the subtle notes of peach, pineapple, honey and vanilla spice in the new Apothic Red.
Lots of appetizers were being passed around and the first one that I got to sample was the Smoked Trout. Little cups of smokey goodness, quite a nice light bite and paired well with the wine.
Next was the Crab & Scallop puff pastry. These were piping hot, with a creamy filling. I could have had about a dozen of them.
Also available were two huge platters of cold cuts such as mortadella, salami, pastrami & pates, with an assortment of some of the larges olives I've ever seen..
In addition to the meats, there was also platters of cheeses as well, with brie, blue, cheddar and many more.
To accompany the meats and cheeses, there were assorted crackers and some delicious rye bread as well.
And oh, the dessert table...this side showcase all the dessert that pair best with the Apothic Red.
Chocolate Mousse Cups, these were so rich and creamy. They might look tiny, but they really pack a punch.
Next are the chocolate cones, These are so pretty and elegant, almost too pretty to eat!
These Sweet Treats were airy, and the Roasted Hazelnuts were a good match the the Apothic White.
As with the Red side, there were little creamed filled cones, but this one was more like a nice fresh whipped cream, a lighter version than the chocolate for sure.
But the one treat that works with both the Apothic Red and Apothic Red? These insanely delicious Chocolate Dipped Dried Mangos! Why hasn't this been done before, or at least, it's the first time I've seen them. I am so getting this for my next chocolate fondue party! Brilliant! Another successful event from the people of A Moveable Feast.
