ONE OF MY MY FAVOURITE LOCAL WINE EVENTS
Café Taste, in Toronto’s Parkdale area will be holding its fourth annual Ontario Wine & Cheese Fare on Saturday June 4th. I love this event because it’s so different from the usual ‘galas’. I feel like I’m at a village feté in France. Winemakers are jammed into the small restaurant and back yard so it’s becomes a cozy party. Something that seldom happens at wine events in Ontario (mine excluded).
Another feature is the opportunity to order wines on the spot. ‘Quick before it’s all gone.’ The County will be out in force this year; look for Norman Hardie, The Grange, Black Prince, Keint-he, Rosehall Run, Huff Estates, and Sandbanks Estate.
Book for the afternoon (1–5) or evening (6–10) session.
$60 in advance, or $70 at the door. Space is limited so book early.
