Event description

Description

We invite you to join our first Foods and Wines from Spain educational workshop of 2020, with Canadian Master Sommelier Pier-Alexis Soulière on Tuesday, January 7.

Pier-Alexis Soulière will lead you through the world of impressive — but often overlooked — Spanish white wines. He will discuss grape growing, winemaking, and Spanish cultural influences along the way. You will taste and discover a wide range of distinctive white wine styles made from unique and fascinating grape varietals — crispy and tart to rich and full-bodied. Discover how these wines can liven up the winter months and on how to pair them well with celebrated Québec produce, and simple tapas.

​After the class, there will be a selection of tapas available for tasting.​

About Pier-Alexis Soulière

Pier-Alexis has dedicated the past 12 years of his career to providing world-class wine service and enhancing guest experiences in some of the most demanding environments. The journey started in Montréal, and continued to London, England, to Sydney, Australia, to New York City and then to California. He has worked in some of the most prestigious Michelin-starred establishments, such as Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, The Modern, and Manresa Restaurant. In 2014, he won the World Young Sommelier of the Year competition held in Copenhagen, where participants from fifteen countries must present their skills under highly competitive, intense and gruelling conditions.

In 2016, he became one of very few to earn the Master Sommelier title before the age of 30, a title held by a total of five individuals in Canada — two in the province of Québec — and 256 worldwide. The Master Sommelier Diploma is one of the most challenging certifications to obtain in the world of wine. Successful candidates must exemplify blind tasting skills, extensive wine knowledge, and outstanding abilities in service and beverage management. In 2017, Pier-Alexis was named Québec’s Best Sommelier by the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers, and one year later he won Best Sommelier of the Americas by the Association de la Sommellerie Internationale amongst 20 participants from 10 countries.
