Speakers
Eduardo Naso

Animateur activité de la saint valentin

This year, Valentine’s Day will unfold at the Museum in a spirit of discovery and commitment to local products!

For one evening, Eduardo Naso will share his passion for Quebec’s terroir. Ambassador of Quebec wines and spirits for over 10 years, he also owns Boire Grand in Montreal. This business is dedicated to Quebec wines, ciders, and microbrewery beers.

In the form of a tasting workshop, on February 9th, Eduardo Naso will present local wines and craft beers, including some Laval products. Because the creation of the products is the result of a long labour, he will introduce affiliated producers and their manufacturing processes. He will also explain the differences between various Quebec grape varieties because Quebec grape varieties do exist! With his fine sense of humour, keen knowledge of the industry, and passion for local producers, he will certainly have many anecdotes!

Each alcoholic product offered at the tasting will be paired with appetizers. Chocolate bites will be prepared by Chocolat Boréal. Eduardo Naso will explain the factors behind the pairings of the evening. He will also present the best tasting techniques so that all participants can make the most of each product featured in this convivial evening.

With friends, as a couple, or alone, join this activity for lovers of local products and for the chance to exchange with Eduardo Naso. Quebec has many exceptional quality products; he will express his love for Quebec’s terroir, its talented artisans, and some of his favourite products with great enthusiasm.

 

ABOUT THE HOST

With more than 20 years in international catering and 15 years as an ambassador in wines & spirits, Eduardo Naso possesses an exciting expertise. Attentive service was and remains the essence of his passion. After graduating from the Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec, he worked in the SAQ and in renowned fine Italian restaurants in Montreal, Laval, Toronto, and even on the Voyager of the Seas cruise ship in the Caribbean. As a student in the first cohort of the UQAM certificate in gastronomy, he learned to combine his service experience with the need to democratize varietal wines. His time as an ambassador of great Californian and Chilean wines offered in the SAQ gave him more tools to talk about gastronomic products, including wines, beers, and terroir ciders. Today, Eduardo is a Quebec wine ambassador and he operates the Boire Grand – William J. Walter business on Fleury Street in Montreal. This shop specializes in local alcoholic products and beverages, and homemade sausages made in Quebec.
