A friendship ignited on a wine buying trip through France.  After a week together dining on French cuisine and tasting all the Champagne, Allison & Heather became forever friends.  That trip was in 2018, when Allison & Heather were wine buyers for busy downtown Toronto restaurants.   The world looks a little different now.
