We are very excited about 2022’s lineup of events. From April we will finally see a return to in-person events where hospitality, friendship, and education flourish. While all of the dates have yet to be confirmed with the venue, our plan currently includes:
Is the contents of the glass a Cabernet Sauvignon or Nebbiolo? Maybe it’s Pinot Noir? Can’t be... the color is too dark... or maybe it isn’t... what else could it be? You’ll have to wait until we finish The Great Red Wines of the World tasting to find out for sure. TVC’s wine buyers have expertly selected eight of the world’s best red varietals. We will not disclose their choices until the end of the event. Come challenge your senses and your knowledge of wine.
June 21 - Riesling-Off! Alsace vs Germany
Riesling is often called the “King of Grapes” and some of the finest Riesling come from Alsace and Germany. At this event we will decide Who Will Wear the Riesling Crown with dry Riesling from Alsace and Germany. Will you prefer the minerality and French influences of Alsace or does your palate prefer the acidic intensity of the wines from Mosel? There can only be one King.
September 20 - Ontario Pinots
Pinot Noir thrives in cool climate and varied clay and limestone soils. For many Ontario vintners, Pinot Noir is the red grape of choice for high-quality wines. Our local winemakers are learning quickly how to master “the heartbreak grape” and wine enthusiasts globally are taking notice. The wines you will sample at the Ontario Pinot Noir tasting will focus on medal winners from the 2021 WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada. This event is your opportunity to be the judge.
October 18 - Australian Shiraz Food Pairings
The Toronto Vintners Club is not just about wine tastings. Every now and then we like to pull some bottles from the cellar, collaborate with a local chef, and tailor a dinner menu to pair with the wines. Our October dinner will feature Australian Shiraz wines, having 10 years of bottle age, and they are anxious to compliment the chef’s whims. (Restaurant and menu to be announced later.)
November 15 - Bubbles & Sparkles
Kick off the festive season with our Sparkling Wine event. Although Champagne can only be made in France, sparkling wines are made all over the world from Italy to Spain, California, Argentina, Canada and beyond. Do you like your bubbles smooth and creamy? Brut or Demi-Sec? There’s no better way to get a celebration started than with a glass (or two) of bubbly! (Wines to be announced later.)
