Wine is better with food! Kris’ menu is meant for sharing: small plates and boards inspired by what’s available locally and seasonally. The food is unpretentious and wine-friendly by design.
Our guided workshops are led by Véronique or one of our trained sommeliers. No matter your knowledge or experience, you’re sure to learn something new! Whether it’s discovering a region or uncorking back vintages, pairing wines with food or practicing the fundamentals of tasting, it’s all about learning, exploring and sharing.

We welcome groups of any size up to our maximum capacity of 75 people. We do fabulous “5 à 7”-style events (cocktail parties that fit into the sliver of time between work and home, great for decompressing or gearing up for a night out) but we also offer wine discoveries, guided tastings, business dinners, private workshops, team building…download the Detailed List, then click Contact Us to send an email and let us know what you’re looking for!
SOIF Bar à Vin is a true wine bar, where wine is our focus. Our concise but ever-changing list offers authentic wines, wines that speak of a place, with a focus on organic and biodynamic growing practices. Natural and real wines made by passionate people!
But wine wouldn’t be the same without food! And they both make each other better. SOIF has a full kitchen and offers an award-winning menu of small and sharing plates, allowing guests to grab a bite or have a full meal. The food is purposely simple: great ingredients and simple preparations, to let flavors shine through and be very wine-friendly.
Véronique Rivest, the sommelier-owner, is one of the most respected sommeliers in Canada and abroad. She was the first woman to reach the podium at the World’s Best Sommelier Competition, placing 2nd in Tokyo in March 2013.
SOIF is all about pleasure: the pleasure of discovering new wines, of tasting, exploring, learning and sharing. All in a very laid back, friendly and fun atmosphere.
