Jackson Family Wines at Planta toronto
Sept. 17 marked a full-bodied evening, ripe with delectable vegan dishes and vegan wines, thanks to Jackson Family Wines. Hosted at Toronto’s Planta restaurant, the event presented guests with samples of vegan products from wineries across California. Though it may sound shocking to some, often animal proteins are added to aid in the fermentation process of wine. Jackson Family Wines has created products that do not require that step.
These vegan wines were paired with dishes prepared by the executive chef, David Lee. Jennifer Huether and John Szabo, two of Canada’s top master sommeliers, hosted the evening and educated guests on plant-based and sustainable wines.
