Queenston Mile Vineyard “Let’s Get Fizzical” Tasting

From Charmat to Pet-Nat and every traditional sparkling style in between they invite you on a FIZZtastic journey of discovery where you’ll get to taste 3 unique, small-batch wines only available at the winery, including their #1 selling unfiltered sparkling. Plus enjoy the accompanying sensory tasting of sweet, salty and savoury bites. Experts will be available to assist you with wine and accessory purchases which you will receive 10% off during your visit!

Château des Charmes Estate Winery “Exclusive Wine & Chocolate Journey” Tasting

Château des Charmes' private host will walk you through a decadent journey of wine and chocolate pairings. Their Rose Sparkling, Traditional Method will be paired with ruby chocolate which is made from an existing botanical cocoa bean varietal that has just the right attributes to be processed naturally into a sweet and sour bite. Next, their Chardonnay Paul Bosc Estate is paired with a sea salt caramel with milk chocolate that blends savoury and sweet hints in one rich and delightful flavour. Exotic passion fruit that delivers a sweet and tangy exotic experience to your palate is the perfect pairing for their Gamay Noir “Droit” from St. Davids Bench. And lastly, their Cabernet Icewine Paul Bosc Estate will be paired with white Belgium chocolate, a combination of luscious white chocolate with a drizzle of ruby chocolate.

The Hare Wine Co “Experiences Well-Poured” Tasting

At your The Hare Wine Co. stop you'll enjoy an intimate food and wine experience in their VIP Room or VIP Patio (weather permitting). Tasting includes a flight of four wines paired with a charcuterie board loaded with artisanal meats, cheeses, pickles and crostinis. You'll start the tasting with the soft and effervescent Crown Land Sparkling, a blend of Riesling & Muscat, which is the perfect palate cleanser for the bold flavours ahead. Next you'll try a glass of their light, crisp and food friendly Frontier Pinot Grigio. Try tasting it with the Capocollo for a mildly pleasant mouthfeel. Or, better yet, bring out the herbaceous undertones in the wine by pairing it with the Mountain Oak Wild Nettle Gouda. Move on to a glass of the Frontier Dry Riesling which is perfect to mellow out the saltiness from the Mountain Oak Traditional Gouda. For a real treat, pair this wine with the thinly sliced Prosciutto Salami, then wait…The wine mellows out the food to bring a beautiful balance in your mouth. To finish the journey, try the medium-bodied Crown Land Cabernet Franc with the Cacciatorino Salami or Thornloe Aged Cheddar. Watch how the fats in this traditional pairing mellow the tannins in this velvety red!
