Artisan cheese, charcuterie and wine during the Salt Cellar Series

If you have ever been to Salt Tasting Room you are probably aware that they have a 30 foot communal long table located below the kitchen, bar and main seating area. The Salt Cellar, as they call it, bears no windows and the walls are made of concrete, creating a rustic, dimly lit space with a unique atmosphere.

Two to three times a month, Salt Tasting Room opens up their cellar for guests to sample a tasting menu built around wines from a selected winery, paired with artisanal cheeses, small-batch charcuterie, and house-made condiments. Their expertise in wine and food pairing provides a rewarding tasting experience that supports local producers.

Each event features the wines of leading producers from BC and abroad, hosted by the winemaker or winery representative to introduce each wine.

Upcoming events:

La Stella Winery on February 19 (BC)

Their wines are every bit an expression of their people as they are of their vineyards; each has its own personality and its own story. 

Sokol Blosser Winery on March 19 (Oregon)

Sokol strives to create wines of world class quality that are produced sustainably, mindful of the environment and your health, and that express the distinctive flavors of their hillside vineyards.

Stag’s Hollow Winery on March 26 (BC)

From the beginning, hands on owners, Larry Gerelus & Linda Pruegger, believe their passion and involvement in every aspect of the vineyard and winemaking process has created a unique style. This style is a fusion of both Old and New world. 

Chateau Ste. Michelle on April 16 (Washington)

Built on the 1912 estate owned by Seattle lumber baron Frederick Stimson, the winery’s roots date back to the Repeal of Prohibition, when the Pommerelle Wine Company and the National Wine Company were formed.

Okanagan Crush Pad on April 23 (BC)

From its ponderosa-surrounded location in Summerland, OK Crush Pad overlooks the Switchback Vineyard to Okanagan Lake. This is the first facility of this kind in Canada, where a team of industry leading consultants offers diverse services to the wine industry (including Italy’s Alberto Antonini).

Nichol Vineyard on May 21 (BC)

Since 1993 Nichol has been creating wines exclusively from grapes grown in Naramata. Their vineyards, on a pocket of land tucked against steep heat-radiating rock cliffs, are the ideal place to craft wines demonstrating intense fruit and refreshing acidity.
