[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]At Bay Street Bull, we understand and celebrate professional dedication but for all the hard work you put into your career, it’s equally important to take in all the experiences summer has to offer. This year, you can spend less time stressing over how to plan those excursions and more time enjoying them as a Visa Infinite member, where you’ll be taken on a special chef-curated dining and wine or cocktail tasting experience through the Visa Infinite Dining series.

Highlighting everything from long-table dinners at stunning wineries to garden parties in the city, Closson Chase Vineyard, Babel, and Stratus Winery offer deliciously sun-ripened summer seasonal tastes. If your card says Visa Infinite, you’ll get exclusive access to these events.  What’s better is that the cost covers canapés, a multi-course meal, and cocktail or wine pairings.

Below, we’ve outlined what attendees can expect from these three unique Visa Infinite dining experiences, from multicultural cuisine to stunning scenery, as well as where to purchase tickets for each experience.
