You have asked and we have listened!

We strive to keep your palates fine- tuned and your knowledge of current trends up to date.

A number of members have come forward asking to taste their favourite varietals from across the world. The National Capital Sommelier Guild has decided to launch a series titled “Tour the World with your Favourite Varietal” that will begin this September.
Our series opener will be Syrah! When we think Syrah, we think Australia and Northern Rhône, but there are so many other great terroirs and cooler climate regions where Syrah thrives. Syrah is not always done as a heavy red wine, there are many other great expressions to this grape.

As well as launching a new series, we are thrilled to be introducing a new venue. Always wanting to stay fresh, the Guild has partnered with Table 40 at Fraser Café.

Guild Director Marie France Champagne will lead you on this tour around the world where you will discover the many facets of this versatile, food friendly and diverse varietal.
