Soif Wine Bar 88 Montcalm Street, Gatineau
Back by popular demand, the Guild is having another wine and small plates event at Soif. For those of you who missed last year’s event, it was a special evening with Veronique, who shared both her immense knowledge and passion for wine in addition to presenting many truly unique varietals. For those of you who don’t know Veronique, she came second at the World Sommelier Competition in Tokyo in 2013. She is also a Governor of the Guild. In the fall of 2014, she opened her long-awaited wine bar in the Hull sector of Gatineau where she serves a diverse selection of interesting wines and delectable small plates. Veronique not only has an amazing palate, but brings passion, excitement, and in-depth knowledge to all her tastings. Read more »
