Around the World ..... of Wine Fort McMurray
Quality Inn and Conference Centre
424 Gregoire Drive
Fort McMurray, Alberta
Travel the world... of wine! Visit all those famous wine regions; sample all those grape types, lots of different wine styles… Let’s take a trip. The whole wine world is our oyster, it includes excellent cuisine, and you don’t have to leave Fort McMurray. We are thrilled to invite you to the Quality Inn on January 11th to enjoy an epic wine tour and the incredible food that goes with it.
Chef Christina and the Quality Inn culinary staff have created a sumptuous world menu in all its delicious diversity. To start we have Lobster Bisque. This is deliciously paired with a great California Chardonnay.
Second course is Grilled Veal & Veg Kebab. This is wonderfully paired with a rich and complex Bordeaux.
After Spiced Apple Cider Granite, our main course is Seared and Herb Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Spanish Roasted Potatoes. This tasty dish is perfectly paired with a huge Spanish red.
For dessert we have Creamy Dark Chocolate Cheesecake. This is tastefully paired with a nice glass of Sherry.
We hope you can join us at the Quality Inn to kick off the 2020 tasting dinner series and enjoy an educational and fun one night world wine tour on January 11th. Margaret and I look forward to seeing you there.
