    Hi folks – 8 months ago we moved to Napanee to get away from the hustle bustle of city life(previously lived near Mississauga) and we have undoubtedly found the citizens of Napanee to be very embracing. We took over a small pub on the main street here in Napanee and were fortunate to have you both visit our establishment on Jan 22 – the day of our Wine Tasting with Bergeron Wines. On behalf of the folks of Napanee I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our community in your trek. I too am a proud Canadian and feel very honoured to now call Napanee “home”. Cheers!
