Les Miserables is coming to Culmina Family Estate Winery for a unique evening of wine, food and the arts.

Partnering with the Arts Club Theatre Company and its summer production of Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables on the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage in Vancouver, Culmina is presenting a multi-course dinner featuring cast members Amy Wallis and Eric Craig on June 13.

First published in 1862, Hugo’s novel Les Misérables has been popularized through numerous adaptations for the stage, television, and film, including the musical.

The evening will feature select live performances from Les Miserables in the Culmina Barrel Room as well as food offerings from Joy Road Catering. Each course will be paired with Culmina’s critically acclaimed wines, including its inaugural release of their R&D line.

This new range of wines celebrate the research and development employed by Culmina co-proprietors Don and Elaine Triggs in the creation of their Golden Mile Bench estate at 4790 Wild Rose St. in Oliver.

It also pays tribute to the playful investigative spirit employed by Don and his twin brother Ron while growing up on the farm in Manitoba. The inaugural 2013 R&D Red Blend is a merlot-dominant blend of Bordeaux varieties.

The Arts Club Theatre Company is in its 51st season and is one of Canada’s largest, oldest and most successful not-for-profit professional theatre companies.

Tickets for the evening are $130 (including tax and gratuity) and must be purchased in advance online at www.culmina.ca or by calling 250-498-0789.
