About the Event
Grizzli has paired up with Chef Andrew Toncini for a sensory experience that promises four world-class ice wines with four culinary pleasures. Take in the views of our snow-covered vines and warm up next to our fireplace in the tasting room while learning about the harvest-to-bottle process of Canadian-made ice wine.
Learn why great food and wine pairing balances a dish's components and a wine's characteristics, leaving your palate wanting more!
The tasting menu includes:
Spicy Meatball & Parmesan Besciamella Cream- Paired with 2014 Sauvignon Blanc
*The perfect blend of Sweet and Spice! Our light & refreshing ice wine featuring dominant tropical fruits and sweetness is balanced with a hint of savoury spices, and a luxurious parmesan Besciamella cream softens the palate by counter-acting the spice to balance the sweetness.
Sicilian Cannoli - Paired with 2015 Gewürztraminer
*This pairing shows that opposites attract! With an exotic blend of rose water, citrus, ginger and tropical fruits, this traditional dessert with a rich ricotta filling and buttery shell offers a balance of complexity and simplicity of a dish.
Panna Cotta Dark Chocolate and Roasted Hazelnut- Paired with 2013 Cabernet Franc
*Showcasing notes of caramel toffee, dried fruits, and brown sugar, our Cabernet France is a perfect partner to balance the delicate flavours and silky textures of Panna Cotta. Both have solid profiles and sweet characteristics, with hints of nutty and salty touches.
Cheese Arancini-Paired with 2013 Merlot Icewine
*Savoury to Savoury! Our fruit-forward, luxurious, full-flavoured, medium-bodied ice wine perfectly balances this warm, gooey cheddar center with a golden crisp exterior. Both rich and decadent flavours share a similar flavour profile.
