Learn About the Future of Wine at Bishop’s Cellar 

Bishop’s Cellar is more than Atlantic Canada’s premier private wine, beer, and spirits provider—it’s also home to a wide assortment of special events for those who enjoy a tasty beverage. All winter long, Bishop’s Cellar will be hosting events, ranging from tastings to information sessions on rare and fine wines. These events are always well attended (their upcoming Winter Warmers tasting session is already sold out!) and a great place to go with friends or solo.
