It’s the time of year that the Wine Sense folks pour and enjoy wine with almost a thousand of our customers. It’s Limited Edition Wine Tasting Season! Many of you have joined us at our Wine Tastings as we’ve been holding them for about 10 years. We started with a single night in Winnipeg with about 30 people and have grown into 1 night in Brandon and 3 nights in Winnipeg with about 1000 people.
For those of you who have never attended one of our tastings they’re a great deal and a great time. We present and taste the 5 Limited Edition wines from this year’s harvest. Tim Vandergrift from Winexpert (many of you will recognise Tim from his regular articles for our newsletters) does a brief presentation on each wine which includes a little history, what to look for in the wine and what foods each wine will pair nicely with. You then get to sample the 5 wines along with a small food pairing with each. Don’t worry- if it takes a couple tastes to find your favourite wine you’re welcome to try again.
All this for only $30 per couple AND you get a $15 Limited Edition Gift Card the night of the tasting- there’s no better deal around!
Many of our customers after so many years started asking for something new- something more in depth… so we’ve obliged. This year we’re holding a Winemakers Dinner. This is a sit down event featuring the 5 wines along with a 4 course dinner. Tim will introduce and describe each of the wines as they are served with their paired course. Held at the Peasant Cookery (a WOW Hospitality restaurant) each ticket is $99 which includes all taxes and gratuities and you get $15 Limited Edition Gift Card the night of the event. An amazing deal for a great night. Why did we choose the Peasant Cookery? Because it’s a WOW Hospitality Restaurant and they hosted our 20th Anniversary Winemakers Dinner- The food was amazing and that’s why many of the folks that attended out 20th Anniversary Dinner are attending this dinner as well!
There is a handful of tickets available for Wednesday November 16th in Brandon.
Tickets are available for Thursday in Winnipeg.
Friday in Winnipeg is sold out but we are taking names for a waiting list (we’re trying to get more space!)
There are 3 tickets available for Saturday’s Winemakers Dinner due to a cancellation.
So if you haven’t got your tickets yet- don’t delay and contact your favourite Wine Sense location and reserve your tickets… and we’ll see you next week and taste some great wine together!
