Tasting (sit down)     Wine    

Quebec-born vigneron François Morissette worked and trained in Burgundy where he embraced the philosophy of the natural wine movement. After sampling a Le Clos Jordanne Pinot Noir made by another Quebec-born winemaker, Thomas Bachelder, and then a chance meeting with Toronto developer Mel Pearl who was keen to finance a winery, Morissette was persuaded to move to Niagara from France to become winemaker at Pearl Morissette but only if he was allowed to experiment and make wine as he wanted. The rest, as they say, is history!

This will be a unique occasion to sample wines from one of Canada's most talked about winemakers. And, we are fortunate to have Svetlana Atcheva, Brand Ambassador for Pearl Morissette Estate Winery as our guest speaker for the evening. You won’t want to miss this event!

The event price includes a reception wine, bread, appetizers and our main wines.
