Dinner & Cellar Clear Out at Trevor Kitchen & Bar

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014








Every few years, Toronto Vintners Club offers its members an occasion to enjoy its surplus collection of premium vintage wines with a gourmet dinner prepared by one of Toronto’s foremost chefs.  Our “Bin End Dinner” or “Cellar Cleaning” helps clear out single and double bottle leftover from past tastings to create space for future events.  As a result, you have an opportunity to dine well and drink lots of sensational wines.  Our loss is now your gain!


Trevor Kitchen & Bar is a fitting place to hold a wine club event, given the restaurant has won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence consistently for the past six years. Chef Trevor Wilkinson and the TKB staff have prepared a unique menu of sensational creations specifically for the TVC to accompany the array of wines from our cellar.   (See page 2 for the menu and page 3 for some of our bin ends.  Wines include sparkling delights, crisp and fruity Chablis, elegant red Bordeaux, hearty Syrahs, and assorted dessert wines to cap off the meal. This event is going to sell out fast, so reserve your ticket today!


Owner & Executive Chef, Trevor Wilkinson, fell in love with food after graduating from university. His résumé includes Jump, Centro and Lobby restaurants, where he was the executive chef. After 17 years working in other people’s kitchens, Trevor opened up TKB in 2007.  According to the TKB website, “Trevor blends his unique cooking style with classic French techniques, seasonal & regional ingredients and a contemporary approach to his cuisine.” This approach to cooking has won Trevor prise from some industry heavy hitters. Here is what some of Toronto’s top restaurant critics have to say about TKB and Trevor:

"Beautiful menu… Wilkinson is an inventor... his food is loaded with flavour." - Joanne Kates, The Globe and Mail


"Food shines in this modern bistro…[Trevor] takes the beef to an 11 as the boys in Spinal Tap would say." - Amy Pataki, Toronto Star



Top Ten Best Restaurants: "It's easy to love Trevor the place and it's equally easy to love Trevor for the food." -


Each table will receive a few bottles with the style or grape to pair with the menu the chef has prepared.  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’ll find something fabulous to rave about and there is plenty of exceptional wine to go around.  Because of the amount of wine available at this event, please take public transit or taxi, or  have a designated driver.  The closest subway station is King Station (Yonge line). There is a Municipal parking lot located at Church and The Esplanade.



If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, please let us know on the registration form and we will pass your information to TKB.  If you wish to contact us before buying tickets, call 416-209-1442 or email


Tables seat 8 – 12 and are on a first come basis.   We’ll have a sign-up sheet at check-in to select your table but you can also indicate on the registration form if you want to be seated with someone specific and we’ll try to accommodate your request.  



Sparkling wines and appetizers will be served as people arrive so please be on time for a 6:30 start.
