Do you love pork and wine? Do you want to help support local Alberta businesses and charities? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, then be sure to stop by City Palate’s 7th Annual Pig and Pinot Festival on June 15th at Hotel Arts in Calgary, Alberta from 7:00 PM – 10 PM. Chef teams from across Calgary will be creating delectable dishes with free-range pork provided exclusively by Spragg’s Meat Shop. The winning team will receive the coveted “Divine Swine” trophy.

About Spragg’s Meat Shop Spragg’s Meat Shop is a family-owned and operated business located in Rosemary, Alberta. Greg and Bonnie Spragg raise hogs, process, and market their pork products direct to Albertan consumers. Spragg’s works hard to produce the best pork for Albertans, from the day the pigs are born, to the day the pork chops are cut, bacon is smoked, and the roast is marinated. The Spragg family hopes that you get as much enjoyment eating their pork as they do getting it to your table.
