“Summer 2017 saw the inaugural Rosé Picnic take over the beautiful grounds of Fort York in downtown Toronto. From the service & offerings to the infrastructure & entertainment, the event was a success and it was a pleasure working with Lori Heller, Matt Dales and Ian Sparks.  The McEwan Group looks forward to working with the Rosé Picnic team again, getting bigger & better each year! This unique event celebrates fantastic wine, food and music which is what summer is all about!”

Celebrity Chef, Mark McEwan
