Happy Holidays from Backyard Farm!!

        As the inaugural season at Backyard Farm comes to its conclusion, I have had a chance to reflect on many of the events and bookings that helped our successes exceed all expectations! It is with the support of our friends in business and family that we can attribute this amazing opportunity to share our love of our region, of food and wine-not to mention doing so in great company……… I wanted to share a few photos i just received of the first Maverick Estate Winery winemaker’s dinners this past October. Big thanks to Bertus’ sister in law and her Beau for capturing the magic of the evening through the lens of their cameras.. For two evenings, starting at the winery for a reception and tour, twenty guests joined us at the farm for a 4 course, wine paired dinner. Bertus and I spent the evening telling the story behind the wine pairings, it was a pleasure to represent his wines through our cuisine!  An unbelievable experience for me to have an opportunity to work with Bertus as my neighbour and friend,  someone who is undeniably passionate about his love of wine. I look forward to the release party in the spring for his bubbles-Ella, we will be confirming details in the new year for ticket availability for this intimate and engaging event in May. We will also be discussing some ideas for additional food and wine paired events throughout next season….. What a warm welcome in the Maverick Tasting Room!               Some shots of the wine pairings in the kitchen at Backyard Farm…..making...
