In partnership with Bothwell Cheese and the Winehouse, FortWhyte Alive presented its first ever Wine + Skis on Friday, March 3! A sold out event with just over 80 attendees, this evening in support of environmental education programs combined an outdoor ski / nature hike with a wine and cheese tasting.
The evenings' creative cheese creations by Chef Erica Reimer of the Buffalo Stone Cafe by Diversity Foods paired perfectly with a selection of wine curated by our Winehouse Sommelier Brittany, who walked us through each course, offering further information and insight into each pairing.
Attendees were encouraged to dress in their cheesiest ski attire – which some took VERY literally! Our best dressed winner took home an excellent prize featuring items from Bothwell, a Winehouse gift card and a FortWhyte Alive Membership.
Our thanks to all attendees, and to our friends at Bothwell Cheese and the Winehouse, and to Olympia Cycle and Ski for providing discounted rentals to attendees! Look for our next wine event, coming this summer to FortWhyte Alive.
