The Museum invites you to a truly unique wine-tasting experience, transporting you across space and time!
Trendy yet traditional, contemporary yet timeless—this entertaining and interactive program is a great way to discover some of the exceptional wines being made by world-renowned vintners, while also enjoying inventive hors d’oeuvres with a distinctly regional flair. In addition, each night you can sample an alternate beer pairing, specially selected by a local microbrewer.
Mix and mingle with savvy sommeliers and microbrewers, Museum curators and Chef Martin De Board as you discover little-known facts about the history of winemaking and how this traditional art is being reshaped in the twenty-first century!
Wines of the Old Continent – September 20, 2013
Many European countries besides France can also claim some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world. Latitude, climate and other unique characteristics strongly contribute to an abundant variety of native grapes. Although part of a long-standing European winemaking history, each country has its own specific style of wine and winemaking philosophies. As you journey through the charming settings of the Museum’s Halls, you will be reminded how geography and natural resources influence cultures, habits and ways of life, and you will see how wines can communicate a sense of place and time.
Offered in Partnership with L’Amicale des Sommeliers du Québec (section Outaouais) and Les Brasseurs du Temps.
