GARAGISTE – (gar-ah-jeest) noun, Fr. : The garagiste originally refers to a group of winemakers in the Bordeaux region of France, producing "vins de garage" or "garage wine". They were renegade small-lot winemakers, sometimes working in their garage, who refused to follow industry laws and protocol. synonyms: Rebels, pioneers, renegades, individualists, mavericks, driven by passion.
The first of its kind in Canada, Garagiste North "The Small Producers" Wine Festival, celebrates the artisan winemaker creating commercially produced small case lot wines (under 2000 cases). An eclectic gang, they are a blend of passion and experience, new and old, the cult and the boutique, the virtual and custom crush—all gathered in one spot.
Meet the winemakers face to face and enjoy great wine, art, conversation and more!
