What’s better than enjoying wine with other wine loving type people? We feel that wine is intended to be a social beverage, and we try to keep it that way. Our tastings are small, casual, informative and semi-intimate (in the good way). We host 14 people, pick a theme, source some killer wines, gather, taste, and enjoy. Keeping things small allows us to talk with you, rather than AT you.
Tastings run from 7 to approximately 9pm.
Each evening includes a guided tasting and lighter fare. We do however encourage guests to eat before attending. We also ask that you refrain from wearing perfume or cologne, as this can affect the aromas and flavours of the wines, and the way other attendees perceive these aromas and flavours.
Please arrange for responsible transportation.
Above all, enjoy yourself!!
Chile. It is Time $50
It certainly is time. Time for consumers to realize the outstanding quality and diversity that the new Chile has to offer. Gone are the days of underripe and over-oaked giant brands. Well, I mean, they still exist, but now there are many great alternatives!
Basics of Food & Wine Pairing $50
Food is good. Wine is great. Learning how the two can elevate each other can make them both outstanding.
Goodness Gracious Greek Grapes
(Wines actually, but I was on a roll with the G’s).
October 27 $50
As long as we are talking about under-appreciated wine producing countries, a conversation about Greece is a must. Tonight Paul ‘The Greek Guru’ will guide you through wines made by the new generation of Greek winemakers.
Spicy Reds $50
What does it mean when someone says a wine is spicy? Everyone seems to have a different answer to the question. This tasting will present my interpretation of wines featuring spicy aromas and flavours.
Native Grapes of Spain $50
The fastest growing category in the shop is Spain. Hands down. This tasting will explore a few of the country’s indigenous grape varieties….made in to wine.
Cold Weather Favourites
November 17 $50
Yep. By now it is probably pretty chilly. Tonight Paul Martzoukos of Tannin Fine Wines will showcase some of his cool/cold weather favourites.
Sangiovese v Nebbiolo $60
Nothing like a little healthy competition between grapes. Tonight our good friend Mark Bata of Bonvida Imports will be presenting four styles of Sangiovese (Brunello included) and pitting them against four styles of Nebbiolo (Barolo included).
