When Uncorked Tours opens in the Saint John City Market in May, guests can expect to be treated to a virtual tour of the province through guided, structured wine, beer and spirit flights. There will be weekly pairings to feature market vendors, as well as regular tap takeovers. Guests will be able to reserve daily tours and enjoy a pre- or post-tour market snack and beverage.
“We’re excited to bring a new experience to the historic city market,” says Gilliane Nadeau. “The Saint John City Market has been a key tour venue for the last 7 years and we are thrilled to invite our guests to experience the flavours and hospitality of Saint John from our new home base for daily tours.”
The driving force behind moving Uncorked back into a public space comes from the pairing up of sisters Gilliane and Nathalie Nadeau who have resided in Saint John for 8 years and 4 years respectively. “We knew that if we had the chance to do something together, we could make it great,” says Nathalie.
“We want to be a resource for locals and a waypoint for anyone spending time in Saint John. Whether interested in daily guided tours, a half pint of craft beer with lunch, or pointers on what to do in Saint John, Uncorked crew members are already excited to share in the visitor’s journey.”
Following the example of other recent taproom openings, Uncorked will not sell any food and instead invites guests to buy lunch from one of the market’s awesome food vendors and bring it in to eat while enjoying a local beer, wine or cocktail.
“Uncorked Tours will be a welcomed addition to the Saint John City Market,” says Andrew MacDonald, Assistant City Market Manager. “Aside from the great foods and finds the Market offers from over 35 full and part time merchants, it’s a popular social gathering place for locals and visitors. What better way to enhance that experience than with a taproom and tour operator.”
At Uncorked Tours we're all about sharing the fabulous food, wine, beer & spirits being produced in the Province of New Brunswick.
It is our pleasure to share some of the awesome experiences you can have while living or visiting the province.
