Favourite grape or wine region?

So hard to pick just one! But if I had to, my favourite varietal would be Chardonnay and my favourite wine area would be Northern Italy (for white wines).

What’s one thing that people would be shocked to know about you?

That I was a vegetarian for over 8 years! Shocking.

What song would you pick for karaoke?

The only answer for both karaoke and staff party dances: Livin’ On A Prayer by Mr. Jon Bon Jovi.

Lucas Mader's Picks

Cozy, Movie Night Favourites

A Canadian Classic, from one of the country’s most loved craft breweries; Dieu du Ciel. The Aphrodite is a bold 6.5% stout that sees the additions of cocoa nibs and whole vanilla beans. The flavour is robust, yet very smooth and has a “chocolate cake with a touch of vanilla icing” vibe – perfect for those cold nights watching Anchorman for the 14th time.
