At Tapenade Bistro, we carefully select interesting wines that compliment our cuisine and tasty wines that we happen to enjoy ourselves. Our goal was not to have the biggest or fanciest wine list, but rather a eclectic list that suits our guests and their occasions.
We have a long history with small independent BC producers and regularly feature their wines. We also pick some great new and old world wines that represent quality and value. Our wine list contains some interesting surprises that many oenophiles would be thrilled to find.

Corkage: With the new changes in BC liquor laws, customers can now bring in their own special bottle of wine to Tapenade. Corkage policies:
25 dollars corkage, must be commercially produced and sealed, limit 2 bottles per reservation, and not on our current wine list.
Every winter, Tapenade pairs up with local wineries to feature in our annual “Winemakers Dinner Series.” We try to showcase premium/boutique BC producers, partnered with our specifically paired seasonal tasting menus. Recent wine dinners featured collaborations with Poplar Grove, Orofino, Nichol Vineyards, Mission Hill, Fairview Cellars, Road 13 Vineyards and La Frenz. These dinners are a rare treat for the Richmond area and they always sell out in a hurry.
We only advertise these dinners through our newsletter and to our social media subscribers, so stay in touch with Tapeande Bistro and sign up now through Tapenade’s Social Networks.
