With a breathtaking view of the Bay of Fundy and the surrounding dyke lands of Grand Pré, prepare for an unforgettable evening – an intimate dinner set amongst rows and rows of vines.

The evening’s schedule:

Terroir Stroll: When guests arrive to the vineyard, they will be greeted by the winery’s owner/winemaker and a glass of traditional method sparkling wine. From there, they will be lead on a guided, leisurely stroll in the late afternoon summer sun through the vineyard to hear about the history and uniqueness of the winery and wines.

Merroir Moment: As the sun hits golden hour, the group will convene on a small deck in a far corner of the vineyard for their first wine and food pairing – fresh Nova Scotia oysters shucked by Chef Jason Lynch.

Savouring Sunset: Guests will then arrive at a set table in the vineyard to enjoy a five-course, al fresco meal prepared by Chefs Jason Lynch & Michael Howell paired with Grand Pré wines.

Devouring Under the Stars- The Devour! team have curated five short films that will mark the start of each course. The chefs will talk about both the inspiration they drew from each film, along with the fresh, locally-sourced ingredients in each dish.

Don’t miss out on the art of pairing film, food and wine in a beautiful setting. With only 12 people per sitting, there is very limited capacity.
