Paella & Rosé Patio Party coming to Vancouver in June

Celebrate National Rosé Day the right way...

If you’re enjoying a seawall stroll on a sunny June Saturday and the enticing aroma of a seafood-studded paella being prepared and the sounds of glasses of crisp rosé clinking waft your way from one of the city’s chicest waterfront patios, you’re going to want to be the one with a ticket to the party.

That gathering happens to be the upcoming Paella and Rosé Patio Party that will be happening at Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio on Saturday, June 8 – which happens to be National Rosé Day. Even better, Ancora is holding this delicious late spring event at both their Vancouver False Creek and West Vancouver Ambleside restaurant locations.

For just $49 plus tax and tip, attendees will get to enjoy a reception style party featuring six notable rosé wines from B.C. and beyond, as well as appetizers and a serving of freshly-made (while you watch) Peruvian-style paella.

Ancora Chef Ricardo Valverde is behind the restaurant’s signature paella, which showcases local crab, prawns, scallops and clams, and the additional zing of chimichurri and Huancaina aioli drizzled atop each serving of the soulful, savoury, seafood-forward classic.

In addition to the paella and rosé, guests can nibble on Mediterranean-inspired tapas like Boquerones (white anchovy on toast), Castelvetrano Olives and an exclusive taste of Cinco Jotas Jamón Ibérico; Ancora prides itself on being the only Vancouver restaurant where you can enjoy this exclusive Jamón Ibérico, made from 100% purebred ‘black hoof’ acorn-fed Iberian pigs.
