Sips with Friends x Pompette
Three years in the making, Pompette opened it's doors at College and Clinton in early May of 2020, and has been a bustling neighbourhood spot since day one!
In France, being Pompette means to be in a blissful state.
It is the overwhelming moment one feels when immersed in the pleasures of the senses.
Martine, Jonathan and Maxime are all trained in the great classics of French tradition. Now rooted in Toronto, they see a wonderful opportunity to share their knowledge and passion with the city. The food, wines and cocktails at Pompette represent the union of French tradition with the innovation of new world ‘’Torontonian Fare’’.
About Jonathan Bauer:
His philosophy on wine: sincerity, identity, balance.
After training as a sommelier at the Strasbourg School of Hospitality, Jonathan set out for Mauritius and established himself in the heart of Prince Maurice, the only Relais & Chateaux on the island.
He promptly went back to France in 2009, where he won the title of Best Young Sommelier, just before joining the reopening team at the Royal Monceau, which was designed by Philippe Starck.
After his tenure at the Royal Monceau, Jonathan teamed up with Daniel Rose, (Le Coucou, NY), who tasked him with the role of Wine Director for his restaurants in Paris, two years prior to winning the title of France’s best sommelier in 2014.
