Guests will meet me downtown at Newman's Wine Vault Provincial Historic Site (in season)where we will spend a short time exploring the history of Newman's Port Wine In Newfoundland. We will then take a short walk down the oldest street in North America to unique local restaurants and pubs for a three hour sampling of local craft beverages, local cuisine and live NL music. Experience can be altered for off season visits.
I'm a Certified Wine Expert/Sommelier and I have worked in the Tourism and Food & Beverage Industry here for more than 25 years. I am very knowledgeable and passionate about all things local. I can't wait to share my knowledge of our unique culture and our smoking hot, food and craft beverage scene, that is literally on fire right now! Having served as Vice President of the NL Association of Beverage & Alcohol Suppliers for many years I have the connections in the industry that will ensure VIP access & service. I'll tell you the story about our curious connection between NL & Portugal at Newman's Wine Vaults. Then we'll take a short walk to the first of three local eateries and pubs sampling the finest of NL craft beverages & gastro delights! You won't find more fun, food and facts in three hours anywhere!!
Local delicious samplings of Newfoundland food and beverages
First we’ll take a quick trip at Newman’s Wine Vaults (in season)for a short history lesson on the odd connection NL has with Portugal. Then we will travel east on Water Street and visit two restaurants and a pub with live music. Well stay off the main tourist path and visit places that are frequented by locals so you can enjoy the most authentic Newfoundland experience possible!
