Sailing with a Sommelier

TASTING CRUISES

The perfect way to spend a summer evening in Saskatoon.

The tranquility of our beautiful South Saskatchewan River. Cruising the Prairie Lily Riverboat. Enjoying some of the finer things in life: Wines and Scotch!

CHARCUTERIE BOXES!  You can add a charcuterie box to your reservation when booking a wine tasting.

We will be releasing our 2023 tasting calendar in the spring.  To get a taste of what we did last year, here are some examples:

Guess the Expensive Wine  – Kick off the summer with one of our favourite and most popular events! Enjoy a fun night as we explore a range of wines and get you to guess which is the most expensive.  Discover how wines of different values compare, if you can tell the difference in price and if the most expensive wine truly delivers the best experience!

 European River TourRivers have been integral to the wine trade in the Old World, not just for irrigation but also for providing slopes and moderating the climates around them. Tonight, let the Prairie Lily show you our beautiful Saskatoon from the banks of the South Saskatchewan while our sommeliers take you on tour of the finest wines Europe has to offer.                                                

Under the Tuscan Sun –  Italy is home to twenty unique wine regions, each with its own grape varieties and wines.  This evening, learn about the wines and sub-regions of Tuscany.  We’ll touch on the terroir and grapes of the world renowned areas of Chianti, Montalcino and Montepulciano and taste wines that are best known from these regions.

California Cruising –  Stunning natural beauty aside, California produces some of the world’s best wines. Full-bodied Cabernets, fruity Merlots, and buttery Chardonnays are just a few of the dozens of varieties from the diverse terrior in California’s premium wine regions.  Join us for an exploration high quality wines hand selected by our sommeliers that are new into the province and will make your palate sail!

 French with Benefits – To many, France is synonymous with wine. What is it about this particular place that makes it a heartland for vineyards? Perhaps it’s the sheer number of regions that each have distinct personality or the vast array of styles that have set the precedent for international wine. Tonight, we will provide an insight into French wine, giving you all the tools to enjoy les vins de France!

Exceptional Scotch Scotch is uniquely enjoyed with its flavours brought forth using the natural resources of the Scottish countryside. From the Islands to the Highlands, Islay to Campbeltown, there are so many to discover! Cruise and taste the expression of region of some of our most exceptional bottles that our sommeliers have been saving solely for this occasion!

 Outrageously Expensive Scotches –  Scotch continues to be the ultimate luxury spirit and the ageless charm of the Scottish landscape is represented in every sip of whisky. Tonight we are pleased to bring you some of our most exceptional samples.  We’ll have four bottles collectively worth $4000, with no bottle worth less than $500! Don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance to sample extremely rare & highly allocated whiskies while we cruise with the Prairie Lily.
