Burrowing Owl Dinner

Le Sommelier presents an Ottawa and a Toronto dinner with Burrowing Owl’s Kerri Wyse-McNolty, who will share her family’s new releases & stories…

We’re thrilled to welcome Burrowing Owl Winery’s Kerri Wyse-McNolty, Vice President and Family Owner, back to Ottawa and Toronto next week. Kerri will take us through the wines and stories of one of BC’s highest lauded wineries.

When her father, Jim Wyse, purchased the Southern Okanagan property in 1993, carefully selected for its potential to produce high quality grapes, he immediately began to replant the existing vineyards. Since their first vintage in 1997, Burrowing Owl has remained one of British Columbia’s first premium and collectible wineries, long before it was commonplace to seek out BC wine. From the very beginning the Wyse family has been leaders in environmental stewardship. When they took over the property, they named it Burrowing Owl Vineyard, after learning that the little owl once prolific in the area, has become an endangered species. The property today is a vibrant ecosystem of indigenous species: more than 100 bluebird boxes and two bat nurseries invite insect-eating guests to stay awhile and dine in the vineyards; ground nests of meadowlarks are protected by barriers in springtime to prevent farm machinery and vineyard workers from inadvertently destroying them; snakes are safely relocated; bears and big horned sheep are discouraged from sharing the harvest but never harmed. Organic viticulture practices are in place, and compost and cover crops are a given. 100% of the $3 tasting fee charged in the tasting room is given to the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of BC, and to the South Okanagan Rehabilitation Centre for Owls. The wine shop alone raises close to $50,000 each year for these two organizations.

We’re looking forward to sharing evenings of new releases paired with an exceptional five course menu in each city. Please see below for the menus, and ticket booking details. Only a few tickets remain for each city. Aaron, in Ottawa, and I, in Toronto, will see you there. 

Sincerely,

Bernard Stramwasser
