Bryant Mao, Hawksworth Restaurant Wine Director and Vancouver Magazines’ 2015 “Sommelier of the Year” will select the evening’s wines paired perfectly for each course.

"My team and I are thrilled to once again partner with Silver Star,” says Chef Hawksworth. “We are looking forward to creating a celebrated summer dinner experience under the setting sun with Okanagan culinary enthusiasts.”
