Poutine and Wine Eh?
What’s more Canadian than poutine? In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, Green Lane Estate Winery is hosting “Poutine and Wine Eh?”. The event will be featuring fresh cut fries with cheese curds from Udderway Cheese Co. and loads of gravy poured on top. This delicious dish will also be paired with a glass of Green Lane Estates wine, staying true to what they do best. Nestled along the Niagara Escarpment in the Twenty Valley, with a stunning view of the vineyard, it’s a beautiful and tasty way to celebrate Canada Day.
