Bob Blumer for Stratus WinesAuthor, broadcaster and multiple Guinness World Record holder Bob Blumer says his ‘Stratusphere’ dinner at Stratus Winery on May 18 will feature a “greatest hits” menu of “surreal bites”. Blumer, who GFR reached on the phone from New York City, is looking forward to his visit to Niagara and plans to cycle from Toronto to the state-of-the-art winery just outside of the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. He told me diners will move around the winery to food stations maned by local culinary students in a laid-back and relaxed atmosphere. Asked why he’s cooking at Stratus, the renown oenophile (and occasional DRC grape picker) gave a succinct answer: “I love the wine.” And, just to add “fuel to the fire” Blumer has invited along Billy’s Best Bottles’ agent provocateur, Billy Munnelly.

Billy Munnelly makes a very serious point about wine
Munnelly, reached on the phone from BBB’s command post in Prince Edward County, says his role is to assist Blumer as he can: “He’s the man, it’s his show.” Known for his theory and practice of matching wines to mood, Munnelly envisions a “Wildass evening – a light-hearted version of a winemaker’s dinner,” adding, “Stratus is such beautiful place and they make such delicious wines, you can’t go wrong.”
