Take your seat At the Winemaker's Table

A Word from Ed

Invariably with the New Year, we have new ideas and make new resolutions for the coming year.  Each year at Flat Rock Cellars our resolution is to deliver an enhanced experience to our customers.  This year is no exception.  I am particularly excited about our At the Winemaker's Table program - an initiative that is very close to my heart.  To me wine is much more than simply a beverage.  It is meant to be enjoyed with family and friends over a great meal.  This program embodies that belief.  On select Sundays throughout the year you are invited to join me at my table.  All that you will eat is the fruit of a great local chef and all you will drink is the wine from a dedicated and passionate team.  You will not choose from a menu, though you will be treated well, and with great respect, (especially if you return the favour).  Collectively, we will eat at a communal table, together in "convivio".  There will be three courses, chosen at mine and the chef's discretion.  Of course, the same will be true for the selection of Flat Rock Cellars wines to enjoy with the great fare.  Our first meal together is this Valentine's Day.

I look forward to sharing this experience with you in "convivio".

At the Winemaker's Tableboots

As you may already know, Flat Rock Cellars hosts an interactive winemaking series - In the Winemaker's Boots.  For the past couple of years, participants have signed on to get down and dirty with all the inner workings of winery life here at the Rock.  Back by popular demand, we are now taking reservations for this years installment of the Full Day Seasonal Series, as well as the 2-hour sneak peek Weekend Workshops. 

As Ed has mentioned above we have also discovered - and it came as a shock to us - that not everybody wants to get down and dirty in the vineyard!  There are some of you however, that would happily put your boots under our table, roll up your sleeves and talk turkey over a great meal with Ed and Marlize or Ross.

The first installment of our new At the Winemaker's Table lunch series is set to take place on the most romantic day of the year - Valentines' Day.  We personally can't think of a better way to tell the love of your life how much you care, than with an intimate gourmet, 3-course lunch with Ed and Ross.  Enjoy some of Niagara's finest cuisine prepared by Chef Mark Hand of Hospitality on Hand, sip on Flat Rock's award winning wines, and "shoot the s*&$" around a large harvest table with the people that make Flat Rock tick. 

Date: February 14, 2010
Cost per person: $75 (plus GST)
