Save the date - again!

As the first book launch event sold out in less than 24 hours, we are thrilled to announce a second festive gathering to celebrate Natalie MacLean's latest book here in Ottawa.

Natalie, an accredited sommelier who was also named the World's Best Wine Writer, will pick her 3 favorite summer wines from the prestigious cellar at Signatures Restaurant for you to enjoy.

While students are on a much deserved study break, Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa will be serving up trays of light canapes to accompany your beverages.

In her newest book, Natalie shares the career and life challenges that forced her to dig deeper and reconnect with her belief in second chances. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look into the glamourous, but surprising world of wine and those who write about it.

Indigo/Chapters just selected it as one of the “Most Anticipated Books of the Season.”

Included in your ticket is a personally signed copy of her book, Wine Witch on Fire: Rising from the Ashes of Divorce, Depression, Defamation, and Drinking Too Much.

$79 + hst/fees - each ticket includes a book

Limited to 100 tickets.

Tickets for our previous event sold out in less than one day, so grab your tickets asap to avoid disappointment!

Please note - this event will be held on our east patio. Should weather conditions require, the event will move inside.
