TopTable Group in Whistler (Araxi Restaurant and Oyster Bar, The Cellar by Araxi, Bar Oso, and Il Caminetto) is host again this year to a series of fine dining and wine-related events as part of Whistler’s premier food and drink festival, Cornucopia.

From November 9-19, 2017 The Cellar at Araxi will be host to the 2017 Intimate Wine Dinner Series. Araxi’s newly appointed Executive Chef, Quang Dang (previously with Toptable Group’s sister venue West Restaurant & Bar) will bring his focused local and seasonal cooking to the various Intimate Wine Dinner Series scheduled throughout the festival pairing your favourite winery with mouth-watering, locally sourced food tastings. Such pairings from Burrowing Owl Estate Winery, Foxtrot Vineyards, Chateau Ste. Michelle, Culmina Family Estate Winery, and The Wines Estates of Moet Hennessy will be featured in the various dinners slated for this series.
