A Celebration of Italian Wine at
Take Five Café Gastown

We’re excited to announce our first wine event to be hosted at our newest café, in Gastown. Join us on June 20th from 6pm to 9pm for an exploration through the wine regions of Italy.

This very special event will be hosted by our co-founder Steve Punzo, as he presents custom tasting plates of Italian inspired canapés paired with a sampling of regional wines from Italy. With over thirty years of experience in the industry, including the development of the award winning wine list at noted Caffé dé Medici Ristorante Italiano, Steve brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise that will ensure this evening to be a unique and memorable experience. Nadine McDowell of Level Concepts also joins us for the event. With over twenty five years of experience in the hospitality and wine industries and being the former North American Director for Donnafugata of Sicily, she brings extensive knowledge of Italian wines and regions.

Please note that all guests must be of legal drinking age and proper identification is required.

Your printed ticket or e-ticket via eventbrite will be required for entry and act quickly! Tickets are limited. You can purchase them online here.

Feel free to join us at any point throughout the evening as tastings and canapés will be available throughout the entire course of the event. Your ticket includes six different wine tastings paired with canapés throughout the evening.

Ample metered parking is available on Cordova street or there is a pay parking lot on the corner of Hastings & Abbott. However, we do encourage all guests to plan accordingly and enjoy this event responsibly.

We look forward to celebrating Italian wines with you.
