CONSECON, ON K0K 1T0
$100 PER PERSON (INCLUDES FOOD AND WINE; GRATUITY AND TAXES EXTRA)
For the first ticketed event of the Partnership for Excellence series, double-certified sommelier, Thierry Alcantra-Stewart, owner of The County’s Adega Wine Bar, will welcome two of the world’s top sommeliers, John Szabo (Canada’s first Master Sommelier) and Véronique Rivest. Rivest is the owner of Soif Bar à Vin in Gatineau, selector of wines for Air Canada’s Business Class travellers, and an accumulator of many prestigious wine awards, including placing in the top 12 in the World’s Best Sommelier competition and capturing second place in Tokyo in 2013. She was also the first woman to appear on the podium in the history of the competition.
These three talented sommeliers will be joined by the Governor-General award-winning locavore, Chef Jamie Kennedy, who will prepare an assortment of wine friendly bites (yes, JK’s famous fries will make an elevated appearance) as guests will be invited to sample a diverse portfolio of over 10 different local and international wines—a perfect wine list!
Edinburgh-born, Ontario-based sommelier, writer, judge, educator and Good Food Revolution’s Editor, Jamie Drummond will emcee this event and prompt our culinary and beverage experts to speak to their wine and food choices.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a 5 – 7 (cinq à sept) themed event, not a dinner.
