Join us for an exciting afternoon tour of Italy and discover new treasures and old favourites. Learn about some of the many indigenous varietals the country has to offer as taught by one of the region's top sommeliers, Robert Miller. In this session, we will taste and discuss six wines from the land of "Oenotria" and see why Italy is the most diverse and exhilarating wine producing country in the world! A savoury cheese board will complement your drinks, and we’ll also have literary wine quotes to add a sip of sophistication!
Robert Miller has over twenty five years experience in the beverage industry. A certified Sommelier with the International Sommelier Guild, Miller also holds accreditation with The Wine Spirits Education Trust in the UK, the American- based Society of Wine Educators and the Court of Master Sommeliers, as well as a Certificate in Oenology Viticulture from the University of Guelph. He currently works with wine distributor The Vine Agency Cave Spring Vineyards, as well as running his drinks consulting and promotions company, "guud wein". Robert is also one of less than 100 persons worldwide to have passed the Vinitaly International Academy's prestigious Italian Wine Ambassador program.
Taverna Pazzo offers affordable food in an energetic and convivial setting taking its cue from the neighbourhood restaurants of New York. The menu features sustainable seafood and house made pastas and gnocchi, and locally-sourced meats and produce while the Pizzeria, located in Stratford’s oldest cellar, offers the best thin crust pizza and pasta in town. All of their simplified flavours in the Italian tradition combine well with their diverse list of wines by the glass and bottle.
