Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra – Niagara Greens at “Victory Farms”

victoryorganicThe Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra prides itself on providing hand-crafted meals using the finest local ingredients. As supporters of the Niagara Region and local initiatives we have made this a core belief of our restaurant.

One of our most popular appetizers, the Niagara Greens “Victory Farm” includes locally farmed organic baby greens, crisp root vegetable “fieno,” toasted pumpkin seeds, fresh squeezed lemon and white truffle oil. A delicious, light salad created with local ingredients that has not only allowed us to offer something different for guests but also support a local business in Niagara.

Victory Organic, located in nearby St. Catharines, offers diverse produce options, grown in the greenbelt of Niagara. A small farm that grows salad greens inside of their very own greenhouse produces local greens year-round for the Niagara Region. Without the use of pesticides or animal manure, the products are clean and safe to eat, making them certified organic.

So why organic? Considering the health of our families, going organic avoids the consumption of chemicals and allows you to receive all of the nutrients from healthy and vibrant plants. No toxic chemicals are found in their greenhouse which means they are Certified Organic from Pro-Cert Canada.

  • Henry of Pelham Cuvee Catharine Rose Brut (Ontario)
  • Champagne Tarlant Brut Zero (Champagne)

Imported from France, the Tarlant Brut Zero, is produced in the city of Champagne. Full of three grape varieties, this rare balance creates a fresh taste and a good choice for the champagne lovers at the Rainbow Room. Sippers will find scents of wax, honey, lemon and mandarin that will create a citrus freshness in your mouth.

Tarlant Wines has been cultivating vineyards since 1687 and founder Pierre Tarlant was the first winegrower in Gland.

The family expanded to other regions and planted their own vineyards beginning a tradition that would be passed down from generation to generation.

Create your own romantic getaway in Niagara Falls this spring by planning a visit to the Christienne Fallsview Spa and then paring it with dinner and a glass of sparkling Tarlant Brut Zero later in the evening. At the end of the night retire to your guestroom at the historic Crowne Plaza Hotel to cap off a relaxing weekend getaway to Niagara Falls.

Fumanelli wines has been cultivating vineyards and creating esteemed wines since 1470. With The Squarno Estate located in the heart of Valpolicella in Italy, it is surrounded by vineyards, cherry and cypress trees – the perfect location to create world-class varietals.

With a restoration project in 1998, the ancient cellars were once again able to host the oak barrels that were famous for their classical Valpolicella wines. The Fumanelli wines, aged in oak barrels contain the fragrances of their local cypress and cherry trees and embody the colours of Italy’s wine culture.

Fumanelli wines are produced through the exclusive grapes that grow on the Squarno Estate, after being carefully hand selected during the harvest. The ageing takes place in 17th century tuff stone wine cellars and wine making is supported by traditional techniques passed down through the family. The Squarno Estate, a part of the Fumanelli family for centuries, has allowed the winemakers to perfect the best practices for producing prestigious wine.

Dinner and wine pairing tickets are available, as is a hotel package that features accommodations, dinner and wine pairings. With this rare opportunity and visit by Marchesi Armando Fumanelli, you will not want to miss out on this once in a life time evening.
