Devour! The Vines

Devour! The Vines

I first attended Devour! The Vines, hosted by Le Caveau Restaurant and Grand Pré Wines last summer as a guest. It was an unforgettable food and film experience: an outdoor seating for only twelve people in the luscious vineyard, a delicious five-course meal paired with award-winning wines and five short films curated by Devour! The Food Film Fest. This year, I was excited to have a peek "behind the vines" capturing images of this unique Nova Scotian dining experience.

Dinner prepared by Chef Jason Lynch and Chef Micheal Howell.
Wines selected by Beatrice Stutz and Chef Jason Lynch.
Films curated by Lia Rinaldo.
