Raven A. Dales

Raven has been in the Food & Beverage industry since 2011, beginning in the culinary arts program at VCC. She worked in restaurants in Vancouver & Victoria, ranging from casual fair to fine dining. While doing so, she studied through the WSET program to better understand the relationship between food pairings and beverages.

Her shift into front-of-house roles was a slow smoulder in the last couple years of her culinary-focused career. She wanted a better understanding of all parts of a restaurant—striving towards a better hospitality experience for all. She began bartending in late 2018, learning the ropes from the godfather’s of the Victoria Cocktail scene Solomon Siegel & Shawn Soole, as well as Nimble Bar Co.

Following her tenure as Head Bartender at Pagliacci’s, she had the opportunity to work with some incredible people, and shape some of the bar programs in Victoria. Every venue continued to give her the tools to be a better hospitality professional and teach her how to better connect all facets of the guest’s experience.

The team is a firm believer in, and supporter of, its local community.

The lake experience is a prime feature here, and the community is now able to come in for some dining fun, creating great memories, sharing a bottle or two and tasting the best of what Cowichan Valley’s producers provide, all put together under the skilled and passionate hands of our talented culinary team.
