Our 2008 Pinot Gris joined some exclusive company recently with its inclusion on a special year end list. You can read about it here.
It’s fitting that the first Five Rows Winemaker’s Dinner will take place at Treadwell Farm to Table Cuisine in Port Dalhousie. James and the Treadwell family have been ardent supporters of our wines since they agreed to showcase our very first release of 2004 Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon. We’ve come a long way since that initial 12 bottle release, but our vision and commitment to small batch craft wine remains the same.
Not a week goes by that we don’t meet someone who was either directly or indirectly introduced to Five Rows through Treadwell’s. They are a key to our winery’s success and have always been a family favourite place to dine. In fact, my mother made James promise to include her favourite Mussel dish as an appetizer at the dinner. I’ve seen a draft of the menu and simply put – it’s tantalizing. The Treadwell team has chosen four complementary courses to pair with our wines. I’ll be pouring our 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007 Pinot Noir, 2009 Sauvignon Blanc and the last of our 2008 Pinot Gris.
I encourage all friends of Five Rows to join us for this undoubtedly memorable dining experience on Saturday, January 29. You can find ticket information here. I’m told they are selling fast.
