This coming Wednesday, May 20th from 6:00pm onwards, Svetlana Atcheva of Ontario’s own Pearl Morissette Estate, will be our next Up Close & Personal guest. Pearl Morissette is a unique partnership born in 2007, between Toronto-based developer Mel Pearl, and Burgundy-trained vigneron François Morissette. They share the same uncompromising vision that values the traditional non-intervention approach to wine growing in order to deliver premium quality wines. Svetlana will be pouring a fantastic selection of their wines and will be available for chatting if you’re so inclined.




At Ascari Enoteca we have been fortunate to meet many of the unique personalities behind the wines we pour. We would like you to meet them too. We consider our ‘Up Close & Personal’ wine series as the anti-wine dinner; a continuing series of commitment-free evenings, conceived of as an alternative to expensive, multi-course winemaker dinners. We will be welcoming winemakers from around the world and closer to home. In addition to our regular menu and wine list, we will be offering a selection of their wines by the glass or by the bottle. Our guests will be spending evenings with us pouring their wines at your table, chatting about anything you may find interesting, sharing their passion and having a glass and a plate of food themselves. If you enjoy hearing the winemakers tell you their stories and the stories of their wines, these are rare opportunites to personally meet the people behind the bottles and the labels. Ask them anything, or just relax and enjoy the fruits of their labour.
