The Vanilla Pod Restaurant at Poplar Grove Winery launched the new Afternoon Tasting Menu on Friday November 2nd! Focused on a social wine bar experience fused with upscale wine country flavours, this new feature offers light savoury bites meant for sharing.
Happy hour is defined differently by everyone, whether you’re looking for a bang for your buck, a quiet spot to have a quality glass of wine or great food at reduced prices. With the Vanilla Pod’s famous hospitality and the sweeping lake views, the Afternoon Tasting Menu treats guests to something extra special, taking happy hour to another level.
The Afternoon Tasting Menu is available daily (except Mondays) between 3PM and 5PM, offering a $6 small plate menu paired with $6 glasses of delicious Poplar Grove wine!
$6 Menu items: Poplar Grove paired wines at $6 per glass (flight of all 5 for $12 – 2oz each):
Paella Arancini Pinot Gris
Warm Olives Chardonnay
Octopus Salad Blanc de Noirs (Rosé)
Carpaccio of Beef Syrah
