for any of you that know pearl morissette - the brainchild winery of financier daniel pearl and winemaker françois morissette, you know that they're serious about naturally resilient, niagara-identity winemaking that's making a serious stamp on the world's impression of ontario bottlings. we've been proud to serve their wines here and at 416 for a number of years now - and as time goes on, and as the VQA continues to reject their products based on silly bullshit such as 'varietal typicity' - they've only become more bold in the wines they put out.
on wednesday, may 10th, we're proud to host a wicked dinner presenting the 2016 'svet nat', a pétillant-naturel style natural sparkling that's as wild as they get - super leesy, acid driven, crazy-ass food wine. we'll be pouring a glass on entry then presenting canapés, a buffet, then a bbq pit in our chinatown back alley with live video broadcast of the pit inside the restaurant!!!! dusty and PM's in-house chef daniel hadida will be making the treats, and the latter course will feature a whole pig raised on the farm and cooked slow over coals chez nous. it's gonna be a party - $85/pp including a glass of the bubbz off the bat, starting at 7. there will be a bunch of PM wines available by the glass and back vintages available by the bottle.
