One of favourite culinary partners is Chef Matt Batey hailing from Calgary’s Teatro Group.  Chef Matt is turning it up a notch with a two dazzling recipes including Vanilla Butter Poached Lobster with Sweet Pea, Lemon & Tarragon Risotto paired with our Queen Taken Chardonnay.  If you haven’t run out to buy ingredients yet for that mouthwatering dish, Chef Matt also has a great option for our Black Rook Merlot with Baked Calamarata Pasta, Cocoa Braised Short Rib and Creamed Leeks.

Our Combret Vineyard welcomes guests at our Estate with old, gnarly vines. Phil alongside Viticulturist Devin Methven talk about the work that was done to resurrect these vines and maintain their health for a bright future. In 2015 we produced our 7th Chardonnay from this single vineyard site, Queen’s Advantage.
