Meet the sweetest meat in YYC

Don't be surprised if you haven't yet heard of Empire Provisions. Dave and Karen began their artisanal butchery and charcuterie in 2016 in a commissary kitchen beneath Una Takeaway. While they've got no proper store front, they're serving up what may be the most delicious sausages, cured meats, and pâté in the city. 

Now don't go poking around back-alleys trying to track down some Guanciale, join us for our (almost) annual stand-up tasting event, Sausage & Syrah! On March 16, we're serving up at least a dozen carefully selected bottles, perfectly paired with Syrah-loving favourites, like Lamb Merguez and Toulouse sausages. They're also preparing a special, highly-secretive offering they've created just for our event...even we're in the dark.

These  'local heroes' will bring you straight to Europe - don't miss it! 

We couldn’t be more thankful to the Metrovino team for all of the support they have provided us since day one. We had the pleasure of creating product for Sausage & Syrah last year and we are very excited to have been invited back to cook for this event once more.  We fervently believe that noteworthy wines, such as the selections available Metrovino, are best enjoyed alongside a great meal.
