This event promises to be a basic training course in how to taste wines and enjoy them.

Among the many different topics that will be covered is the role of human intervention in wine-making. As we become more and more conscious of what we eat, perhaps we should also be more conscious of what we drink!

We will be comparing “industrial wines” with “non interventionist” wines.

Mr. Cercone will talk about the use of pesticides in the vineyard, the use of sulfites in preserving wines, etc.

Upon your arrival, you will be welcomed with a glass of wine. Light refreshments will be served following the presentation.

Jonathan Cercone has been working in the restaurant business for the past 12 years, all of them at the Taverne in Westmount Square where he became a partner last September.

That was the occupation that paid the bills through his political science degree and after a year and half of law school, he decided to make the restaurant business his career.

He is a self-taught sommelier and has been in charge of the wine program at the restaurant for five years.
