Sailing with a Sommelier

TASTING CRUISES

The perfect way to spend a summer evening in Saskatoon

Bookings open in April 2024.

The tranquility of our beautiful South Saskatchewan River. Cruising on 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.  (Sorry, charcuterie doesn’t go with scotch….)

We will be meeting with our Sommeliers in the spring.  For now, here’s what we did in 2023 to whet your palate.  Stay tuned!

July 5th – 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!

 July 12th  – 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!

 July 19th – Rosé on the River – Rosé wine is a bright and fresh wine, perfect for a night on the river!  Rosés, ranging from a soft, subtle hue to a vibrant, hot pink, are growing in popularity as another feature of a relaxing summer.  The only thing that makes it more relaxing, is gliding down the river!

July 26th – Italian Big Guns – Italy is home to twenty unique wine regions, each with its own grape varieties and wines.  The extensive latitudinal range of Italy and its long shoreline contributes to moderating climate effects to coastal wine regions.  The mountainous and hilly terrain provide a variety of altitudes and climate and soil conditions for grape growing.  So much to savour!

August 2nd  – West Coast WinesThe four valleys of the West Coast offer an incredible flavour trek.  Journey with us through Okanagan Valley, BC, the Okanagan Valley, Washington, down through the Willamette Valley, Oregon and on to Napa Valley, California

August 9th – Peat Monsters – Peated whisky is given a smoky flavour by compounds which are released by the peat fires used to dry malted barley.  This cruise, we’ll dig into some of the peatiest whiskey available.  Not for the faint of heart, these monsters will take your tastebuds to a new level!

 August 16th – Danube Dreams  – The Danube flows through much of Central and Southeastern Europe, from the Black Forest into the Black Sea.  Along her valley are some of the world’s most favoured flavours.  Join us as we cruise through what makes the Danube dreamy.

August 23rd  – 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.

August 30st – The Iberian Peninsula – The Iberian Peninsula is a mountainous region of Spain and Portugal.  While sometimes overshadowed by other European wine regions, Iberian wines remain a mecca for lovers of rich, full-bodied and fortified wines.  Summer is just about to end but your foray into new experiences are just beginning!
