Ross to show his culinary chops at I4CPosted June 06, 2012
With thirteen "cool" events featuring over 100 different chardonnays and 55 international wineries, the International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration is the "don't miss" food & wine festival of the summer! Sip and celebrate with Flat Rock Cellars this July at the 2nd annual International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration. Ross Wise will be pouring the 2009 Chardonnay and 2010 The Rusty Shed Chardonnay 2008 Riddled Sparkling throughout the weekend, including Friday night's Official Kick-Off Party featuring The Arkells, the Flat Rock Cellars luncheon, and the Cool Chardonnay World Tour and Beyond the Barrel Dinner - the i4c signature event - on Saturday.
Saturday evening, tour the world with one glass...in one amazing night! The Cool Chardonnay World Tour is the only event where you can taste all of the wines being presented at the 2012 celebration. Enjoy a leisurely 2-hour tasting in the stunning rhododendron garden, while enjoying sumptuous hors d'ouevres from Quebec's renowned Maison du Gibier.
Following the World Tour tasting, enjoy our signature "Beyond the Barrel" al fresco dinner. I4c winemakers Brian Schmidt (Vineland Estates), Craig McDonald (Hillebrand), Philip Dowell (Angels Gate), Ross Wise (Flat Rock Cellars), Harald Thiel (Hidden Bench), Ron Giesbrecht (Henry of Pelham) and Dan Sullivan (Rosehall Run) will turn in their corkscrews for whisks, tongs and spatulas as they join Chef Erik Peacock and to present a fabulous regional feast.
Dine under the stars, mixing and mingling with the participating winemakers, then finish the night with a "Blanc de Blanc" bar and a live band in the heart of Niagara's wine country.
