Wine & Words Fundraiser

Word on the Street Halifax is partnering with Bishop's Cellar to offer suggestions for pairing wine with local literature! During the month of April, Bishop's Cellar will donate a portion of the proceeds for the sale of every bottle of wine that they have suggested in their pairings. On Thursday, April 24th we invite you to enjoy samples of the suggested wines while listening to authors read throughout the course of the evening. What could possibly be better than an evening of wine and literature?? Tickets will be on Eventbrite soon - stay tuned for further details!
