La Vita Ruffino, An Italian Escape

Vancouver International Wine Festival kicked in full force this weekend. It was such a treat to join Rick Chung to La Vita Ruffino, our local Italian escape to Tuscany (thanks again Rick!) where we had Ruffino wine, nibbles by Railtown Catering, and met Ruffino winemaker, Gabriele Tacconi. It was a fantastic night surrounded by great company.

Serving at the bar: Ruffino Prosecco, Riserva Ducale, and Lumina Pinot Grigio

The space was absolutely gorgeous. Kudos to Heth PR, Countdown Events, and Celsia Floral for the stunning transformation and putting together an amazing event.

Topping it all off, La Glace Ice Cream was there and you can probably guess what I'd request for ... Here's the cutest triple scoop mini ice cream cone with all three flavours; Lemon Meringue, Chocolate, and Pinot Grigio.
