SAVOIR and Casa Dea Estates Winery are offering Wine Master Classes highlighting Prince Edward County Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Master of Wine candidate, Alexandre Craig, leads a tour through the tasting of 6 wines reflecting quality at every price point and discusses the various winemaking and terroir influences that can be found throughout the County, from South Bay to Hillier and everything in between.
In addition to having worked in the wine industry at some of Ottawa’s top restaurants, Alexandre is the principal instructor at The Vendange Institute in Ottawa where he teaches certificate courses for the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) and the French Wine Society (FWS). He shatters the image of the imposing, elitist sommelier; his classes are fun, engaging and informative!
The morning classes showcase Chardonnay. An optional lunch at La Pergola restaurant at the winery is available after the class. The afternoon classes explore County Pinot Noir. This class ends at 5:30pm making it a perfect prelude to your dinner plans.
