My first Wine Dinner gig!

I'm so excited to be pulling together both sides of my work experience in a brand new event for the Halifax Chamber of Commerce!  Next Wednesday, May 18th, I'll be working with  Innovative Beverages and Bishop's Cellar to launch the Chamber's first ever wine dinner! 

As a sommelier in training, I managed to sweet-talk my boss into introducing our members to the exciting world of wine, as well as opening it up to the public at no extra cost! The Chamber's first ever wine dinner will allow members and non-members the opportunity network while dining on CUT's award-winning cuisine while sampling fantastic wines from all over the world. 

And talk about a great deal! This event features 5 courses with wine pairings, as well as a sparkling wine reception, for only $90, tax and tip included! It doesn't get much better than this! For more info, or to book your tickets, email me Kristen Pickett, or call direct at 481.1234.  Check out the menu below to get your palate ready for this great event!
