Where Is The Winemaker’s Dinner Taking Place?

This exclusive event will take place in one of our finest Big White accommodations: White Caviar Chalet. This true work of art blends the traditional comforts of a classic mountain chalet, with the luxurious indulgence and modern touches worthy of its name. This impressive ski chalet boasts 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, as well as a private sauna and indoor hot tub with floor-to-ceiling and panoramic windows (perfect for enjoying the snow-capped scenery). White Caviar Chalet also has a gorgeous great room with 25′ vaulted ceilings, and also has a huge, fully-equipped gourmet kitchen and elegant dining area perfect for your most upscale dinner parties. Located in the White Forest Estates area, White Caviar Chalet is tucked away in a more peaceful and private spot on the mountain but still has excellent ski in ski out access to and from the Chalet. Highlighting the best parts of Big White Ski Resort with its impressive views, it’s the perfect venue for our exquisite Winemaker’s Dinner (and your next luxury ski vacation).

What Will We Be Enjoying During The Event?

Chef Chris Van Hooydonk will create an amazing 5-course dining adventure pairing his culinary creations with hand-selected wines for each course from Quails’ Gate Winery. The culinary inspirations focus on local, seasonal Okanagan producers to pair with hand-crafted wines selected by our winery partners. Bringing together a marriage of unique library wines and a select few current vintages showcasing the best of the Okanagan, this is an exclusive feast shared with other like-minded wine, ski and food enthusiasts you won’t want to miss.
