The Finer Things
December 20 & 21
Newman Wine Vaults
The Shakespeare by the Sea Festival is once again hosting our popular annual wine-tasting evenings celebrating the finer things in life.
The evening features a selection of fine wine tastings, inspired this year by the theme "Shakespearean" and led by wine educator Tom Beckett of Beckett on Wine.
Each wine is paired with a gourmet cheese selection from Belbin's Cheese Club and enlightened conversation.
The tastings are interspersed with intimate performances of Songs, Music, Scenes and Speeches from Shakespeare, a special set of selections performed by the finest Festival alumni, chosen and directed by Paul Rowe.
Celebrate the Finer Things in life with the Shakespeare by the Sea Festival on either Friday December 20 or Saturday December 21 in the Newman Wine Vaults, Provincial Historic Site.
The event begins each evening at 8pm and tickets are $50, with all proceeds going to the Festival.
