The Great Canadian Oyster and Ontario VQA Wine Experience at Rodney’s Oyster House – Nov 28th

John SzaboJohn Szabo, MS, in partnership with the VQA Wines of Ontario and Rodney’s Oyster House, is proud to present the first annual Great Canadian Oyster and Wine Experience. Come and enjoy the finest oysters Canadian waters east and west have to offer, at the peak of the season, matched with Ontario’s incredible homegrown wines. A pre-dinner tasting featuring a dozen top Ontario producers, with plenty of shucking going on, will be followed by a full menu inspired by the sea, paired with Platinum and Gold winning wines from the WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada.

Hob-knob with Toronto’s top food and wine professionals who will be out in full force; WineAlign principal critic John Szabo will emcee the evening along with Rodney Clark himself, who will speak to the ‘merroir’ of each oyster (terroir of the sea). You’ll also be tasting a trio of oyster and VQA wine pairings as pre-selected by a panel of self-declared oyster professionals, and voting on the ultimate pairing, with a chance to win some cool prizes. It will be a night of superlatives, for a very limited number of guests.
