Join us to help support Steve Robinson as he continues his journey to become Canada’s 6th Master Sommelier, one of the highest sought after and most difficult accreditation in wine. What is money raised for? To help Steve train, flights and hotel to the exam, purchasing of wines to train, visits to mentors. The evening will consist of a tasting of a flight of 6 wines paired with 6 small plates from Ottawa’s top Chefs Marc Lepine (Atelier), Briana Kim (Alice), Jason Sawision (Stofa) and Rich Wilson (Beckta)
