No. 14: Soif Bar à vin

Soif Bar à vin in Gatineau is a treasure for any wine lover.

Soif means thirst, and thirsty is how you should arrive at this elegant wine bar, but never how you leave. The rich, Eurocentric wine list is curated by owner and celebrated sommelier Véronique Rivest, who has won the title of Canada’s Best Sommelier twice and once placed second in the World’s Best Sommelier battle in Tokyo. Rivest’s signature Spotlight on Women wine flight highlights female winemakers from Alsace to Sicily. A charming backyard patio provides the perfect destination to linger over a wine flight on a balmy summer afternoon
