Canada Day Winemakers’ Weekend at Fogo Island Inn

Celebrate Canada Day at one of the four corners of the flat Earth with four of Canada’s premier wine specialists, who will convene far away from far away for an exploration of food, drink, and sense of place on Fogo Island, Newfoundland.

Sommelier Brie Dema, who has held positions as Head Sommelier in many top Ontario restaurants and is a regular contributor to Quench magazine, will be accompanied by a coast-to-coast trio of Canadian winemakers during an extended holiday weekend at Fogo Island Inn, where guests will get to experience life as it was then, and as it is now, on this island, off an island, off the coast of Newfoundland. Inspired by the traditional foodways of Fogo Island, David Paterson of Tantalus Vineyards (British Columbia), Ilya Senchuk of Leaning Post Wines (Ontario) and Jean-Benoit Deslauriers of Benjamin Bridge (Nova Scotia) will conceive of innovative pairings and tastings over the course of the weekend’s national celebration.

The Canada Day Winemakers' Weekend itinerary at Fogo Island Inn includes all meals (wine pairings available at an extra charge), curated wine tastings, an Island Orientation with a Community Host, and a range of special Canada Day festivities. A three-night minimum stay is required. To reserve, call International Reservations at +1 709 658 3444, US & Canada Reservations at +1 855 268 9277, or email [email protected]
