Wine Glasses Hanging from Rack

Our Story

"Sippin' Pretty" began in 2019 when my daughter and I decided to learn more about wine by taking a Level 1 Wine & Spirit Education Trust course. We both love wine, and teaching, so it came naturally to us that we needed to pass this wine information on to others! Jacqueline has been providing home pairings and lessons for over 2 years.
I retired from teaching when covid hit and quickly realized that I needed a hobby.  The 1927 home in our yard was sitting empty and my husband wouldn't knock it down, so what to do with my full-sized she-shed?  I'm not very crafty and my only hobby is taking wine courses so all I could think of to do with the house was to give "Sippin' Pretty" a home base. Jacqueline and I spent a year researching the history of the house and the people that lived there. We took the house back to its original 1920's look and learned all about Jim and Jean Chevraux who had built the house. It turns out the Grandma Jean had been quite the flapper girl! We found her hair crimper, her hockey skates, and her furs!  In honour of her, the house became a Speakeasy! 
I took a Level 2 WSET course and a wine and food pairing course. I love wine and I love teaching so offering wine courses seemed the natural thing to do in our 1920's House.
When we think wine, we think of evenings with friends, of meals enhanced by the perfect bottle, and of celebrations. 
But purchasing wine can be daunting! Today's wine shelves are full of many bottles, unlike when I was a teenager and "Strawberry Angel" or "Lonesome Charlie" were Canada's only choices!  There are so many varieties and styles that it is hard to know which to choose.
At "Sippin' Pretty"  we will teach you the differences between the grapes, between the methods & techniques of winemaking, and between Old World and New World wines. We will help take the guesswork out of buying wine and let you buy the perfect wine for pairing with tonight's supper, even if it's pizza!
We are running 6 different classes for you to choose from.
But seating is limited so please call ahead.
Of course, we will still be offering our "Home Parties" where you can enjoy the tasting in your own home.
But if you want to attend our 1920's Speakeasy, please give us a follow on instagram or Facebook so you know about the special events!
