It’s that time again. Time for Toronto Vintners Club to clear out the surplus collection of premium vintage wines from our extensive cellar. These events allow us to take the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful dinner and get to know each other in a more relaxed environment. In June, TVC members will have the opportunity to taste some sensational wines left over from past events which didn’t sell out.
This year, the TVC Board of Directors has worked hard with chef Massimo Capra of Mistura Restaurant to prepare a feast to compliment the fine quality of wines from our cellar. Mistura offers patrons “contemporary Italian cuisine reflective of a simplified, yet refined approach to taste.” The restaurant focuses on seasonal ingredients and June’s menu should not disappoint.
Since opening in 1997, Mistura has been accumulating rave reviews. Referring to Mistura, Joanne Kates wrote in The Globe and Mail: “Mistura has me flushing with pleasure. It has that alluring combination of upscale service and comfort, blissful food and no starched shirts. So very few good restaurants manage to create an easy-going feeling. Mistura does it.” While Alan Vernon of Toronto.com gives similar compliments to the chef: “This place was packed on a Tuesday night. Chef Massimo Capra, formerly of Michael Carlevale's Prego Della Piazza, seems to have found the perfect niche; provide no-compromise, upscale, quality Italian cuisine in a very relaxed, almost private-club-like, environment.”
So how will this work when we have only one or 2 bottles of a wine? Each table will receive several bottles with the style or grape and quality as comparable as possible to other tables, to pair with the menu the chef has prepared. But if you see something better at another table, create some fun and meet more people by bartering or trading your bottle or a glass for another! We’re sure you will find something fabulous to rave about for years to come and there is plenty of exceptional wine to go around, we assure you.
Mistura Restaurant is located at 265 Davenport Road. The closest major intersection is Davenport Road and Avenue Road The closest subway station is St. George Station. The closest parking lots are located at 174 Pears Avenue and 106 Pears Avenue. We strongly encourage you to take public transit or taxis because of the amount of wine being served. Otherwise, have a designated driver who drinks moderately.
Guests will be seated on a first-come first-serve basis.
Don’t miss the dinner event of the year!
