What we’re excited about:

If you’ve lived or visited BC and have a penchant for good food and great wine and looked towards British Columbia for a selection whilst in a fine establishment, then chances are a sommelier or server has enthusiastically recommended Foxtrot Vineyards as a superb option for a delicious Pinot Noir.  Alta Bistro has loving served Foxtrot since our first day open and we’ve always been passionate about telling the Allander family story about how Foxtrot came to be and their pursuit for quality in their craft.

Well, 2014 has arrived and we’ve just fallen head over heals for the 2012 Foxtrot Chardonnay from the Coolshanagh vineyard just down the road from Foxtrot in the beautiful Naramata Bench north of Penticton, B.C.  Gorgeous aromas of citrus, apples, and touches of butter and toasted nuts, full and rich and very long, satisfying finish, dare I say a BC Meursault without getting a call from the French AOP Police?  We are currently featuring it by the glass preserved fresh by Enomatic and suggesting it with Chef Cassettari’s Black Cod & Fried BC Octopus.

Corkage:

We allow corkage at Alta Bistro for $35 per bottle.  We would be pleased to open your rare, fine and special bottles.  Please call ahead and let us know when you’ll be bringing something special in, and best to drop it off a few hours before dinning if possible to let it acclimatise to our cellar temperature.
