UP CLOSE & PERSONAL with Pearce-Predhomme & Potel




Our next Up Close & Personal is a triple threat! Next Thursday, June 11th, our featured guests include two Toronto guys (also our eastside neighbours) and one guy from Burgundy. It’s a negociant party at Ascari featuring Nicholas Pearce, Will Predhomme and Nicolas Potel; a little of Ontario, Oregon and Burgundy. Amazing friends making amazing wine.

Nicholas Pearce, also an accomplished importer/distributor, Will Predhomme, one of Canada’s top sommeliers, and Nicolas Potel, an internationally recognized & leading red wine negociant in Burgundy will be hanging out at Ascari, pouring their wines and available for chatting.

This is going to be an extremely popular night in the UCP series so make a reservation asap if you’re coming in for dinner as we’re booking up already, or, just drop by for a glass or two of wine whenever you feel like it.



At Ascari Enoteca we have been fortunate to meet many of the unique personalities behind the wines we pour. We would like you to meet them too. We consider our ‘Up Close & Personal’ wine series as the anti-wine dinner; a continuing series of commitment-free evenings, conceived of as an alternative to expensive, multi-course winemaker dinners. We will be welcoming winemakers from around the world and closer to home. In addition to our regular menu and wine list, we will be offering a selection of their wines by the glass or by the bottle. Our guests will be spending evenings with us pouring their wines at your table, chatting about anything you may find interesting, sharing their passion and having a glass and a plate of food themselves. If you enjoy hearing the winemakers tell you their stories and the stories of their wines, these are rare opportunites to personally meet the people behind the bottles and the labels. Ask them anything, or just relax and enjoy the fruits of their labour
