Keep Calm & Drink Wine
Tastings are held at the Faculty Club, University of Toronto at 41 Willcocks St. Toronto ON M5S 1C7, usually on the third Tuesday of the month.
We host nine wine events per year, January to June and September to November, including the occasional wine dinner and walk around event.
Tastings usually start off with a reception wine followed by a sit down tasting where we sample 8 wines blind and then rank the wines from most favourite to least favourite (although often our least favourite wines are still usually fabulous!). Finally, we reveal the identity of the wines. Light appetizers and bread are served at our sit down tastings.
Guest speakers are invited to share their knowledge and experience about the wines. We also ask them to rank the wines they taste and we compare our rankings with theirs for fun.
An average cost for an event ranges from $65 to $110 per member and covers the venue rental, set-up, stemware, wines including a reception wine, bread and light appetizers. Guest prices are $20 - $25 higher.
We accept credit card payments via PayPal when registering for our events.
Newcomers can sign up for our Newcomers' Table when they register for an event. Don't be shy! It's a great way to meet other members and to learn more about wine from experienced club members.
Our wines are professionally stored in an environmentally controlled, high security vault operated by Iron Gate.
To educate people about the joys of drinking fine wine by sampling and evaluating wines from all over the world and to have fun in the friendly company of others.
