Bachelder Wine Pairing Dinner

Carte Blanche


Meet the winemaker, Thomas Bachelder, at this 4 course, 7 wine pairing dinner!

"Thomas Bachelder, former winemaker of Le Clos Jordanne in Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula, has released a trio of Chardonnays from 3 different wine regions around the world – Burgundy, Oregon, and Niagara. Why were these areas chosen? Well, Niagara and Oregon have cooler climates similar to Burgundy, Chardonnay’s ancestral homeland, and since Bachelder wanted to showcase cool climate Chardonnay at its finest, these were logical choices."
