Celebrate Harvest at Singletree Winery with Winemaker’s Longtable Dinner on November 3

Singletree WineryHave you ever tried any BC wines from the Fraser Valley?  Have you ever tried the cuisine from Forage Restaurant in downtown Vancouver?  If you have said “no” to one or both questions, I have a way you can experience both at the same time.  Singletree Winery in Abbotsford is having a Long Table Dinner featuring dishes prepared by Forage Restaurant, paired with their wines.  Here is the announcement.  The dinner is Nov. 3.  Get your tickets before they sell out fast.


[Abbotsford, BC] The Etsell Family from Abbotsford’s Singletree Winery invites the community to gather at the Mt. Lehman Community Hall on November 3 (6:30pm-9:30pm) to celebrate this year’s bountiful harvest, in the upcoming Winemaker’s Longtable Harvest Dinner


Wine club member tickets are $125 per person, or tickets are $150 for the public.

Limited tickets available for purchase via email or from the winery’s Abbotsford tasting room. Call the tasting room at 604-381-1788, stop by the winery, or email info@singletreewinery.com


With a family-style, six-course meal prepared by celebrated Vancouver chefs from Forage, and wines from Singletree, three generations of the Etsell family will be onsite to host the evening of celebration.


Friends will gather over the long harvest table as live music plays and the community enjoys an outstanding, cozy meal. And just last night it was confirmed that the one and only Ryan McAllister will be performing for everyone that evening!

About Singletree:

Singletree Winery Fraser Valley is in the Mt. Lehman area of Abbotsford, and Singletree Naramata Bench opened in 2018. The Etsell family has deep roots in the agricultural community.


With careful attention to their land, they are committed to showcasing the best of British Columbia: the Fraser Valley, which provides a lineup of aromatic, crisp, and juicy wines that showcase this unique terroir; and Naramata Bench in the Okanagan, where the glacial soils and warm climate produce luscious red wines.


Their portfolio includes Siegerrebe, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Grüner Veltliner, Late Harvest Kerner, Pinot Noir Rosé, Wild Ferment Siegerrebe, a white blend called Homestead, Harness, a Bordeaux-style red blend, and a traditional-method sparkling wine called Victory. The wines are made by second generation family member Andrew Etsell, under the guidance of consulting winemaker Matt Dumayne.


The Fraser Valley winery is open for visitors Wednesday through Sunday, from 12 noon to 5:30pm. Naramata is softly open on select dates.
