Presented by The Common at The Forks Market

Come experience The Common’s new summer wine list paired with your everyday favourite Forks Market Food Hall offerings and intimate wine banter with The Common’s award-winning sommelier, Veronique Rivest. Only 35 tickets available.

"Eat what you like and drink what you like and you will be happy." That's Veronique's approach to wine pairings – a perfect match for the Food Hall atmosphere at The Forks. She’s also a wine genius. Go ahead and Google her. But we love her because whether your go-to is fish + chips or roti, or you’re looking for the perfect pairing to go with your NuBurger and French fries, Veronique’s attitude towards wine is comfortable, casual, and creative, and her selections for The Common reflect that. Come for a fun evening of discovering new wines paired with Forks Market Food Hall favourites + wine banter with top sommelier, Veronique Rivest.
