Have you ever wondered what the effect of age is on a good wine but haven’t made the investment to find out?  What sorts of wines were being made during Canada’s Confederation?  To answer that question Guild President Bill Ellis has been assembling a number of well aged wines (mostly Bordeaux but a few whites as well) through auctions over the past year for our members to try.  We even have a few duplicates to see if the quality varies from bottle to bottle.  Please join us to enjoy what will prove to be educational and enjoyable!

  • 1982 Mersault Chateau de Mersault (2 bottles)
  • 1982 Jekel Vineyards Private Reserve Arroyo Secco Chardonnay
