Cornucopia Whistler Wine & Food Event
Cornucopia Whistler is the ultimate Whistler retreat for every foodie and wine connoisseur. No matter how extensive or minimal your knowledge on food and wine this year's event is guaranteed to be a feast for your senses. Cornucopia has expanded to 11 days of events from November 7-17th, 2013 celebrating food and drink from Whistler and beyond. Chefs, sommeliers, brewers, vintners, restaurateurs and health and wellness experts will gather in the mountains to share culinary secrets through tastings, seminars, special winery dinners and sparkling after-parties.
The vast variety of wine and food seminars are the perfect combination of knowledge, laughs and mouth watering perfection. The brand new feature on this year's event calendar is the Nourish Series which focus on finding the balance of indulgence and healthy dining habits. I'm sure we could all benefit from this fabulous new healthy focus, particularly after tantalizing our taste buds at Cornucopia's star event, Crush Gala Grand Tasting.
The Crush Gala Grand Tasting will again get a double feature this year being held on both Friday 8th and Saturday the 9th to enable a broader audience to kick off their Cornucopia celebrations in flavorsome style. Don't forget to check out another brand new, cornerstone event for 2013 POURED, encompassing an intimate tasting experience of wine, cider, beer and food. POURED gives you the freedom to explore your taste and style with several delectable bites and brews to sample and you receive your very own glass to take home.
The list of events at this year's festival is endless and you'll be sure to find something to suit every taste bud. The Crystal Lodge & Suites is situated in the centre of Whistler Village with all of the festival events just steps away. Stay longer and enjoy more of the festival with rooms from $89 per night.

"One of my favorite hotels in the world"
It is possible to fluke a flawless visit to a hotel. It could also be said with a little luck you could have an exceptional guest experience with little or no input from the staff and administration of an establishment. This being the case we decided to return to the Crystal for a second year in a row (something we have never done anywhere else in the world) to see if our first visit was a fluke. I am very happy to confirm it was not. The staff team from front desk to housekeeping are all exceptional and I couldn’t fault one single function, task or attitude in the building. I genuinely feel that they care about my experience and stay with them both in and out of their hotel. I hope this review encourages you to stay with them, I hope it encourages the team there to carry on doing exactly what they are doing. And I hope to see them again in the future. Well done guys and thank you for another magical stay.
