Vendange Institute 440 Albert Street, Suite C108

This release will feature Australian wines from the 2012 vintage. Wine critic James Halliday had this to say about the 2012 vintages, “I cannot remember a vintage having received such hyperbolic praise right across the board, covering all regions and all varieties, as there is for 2012.” The release also includes some of Ontario’s best, all of them award winners.

This star-packed tasting will be led by Guild Director Marie-France Champagne and it is likely to fill up quickly!

We encourage you to register early as all members signed up by Saturday, February 14, 2015, will be invited to suggest a few of their choices from the release. We will consider the requests as we make the final selection, particularly looking at popular items based on multiple responses along with any intriguing thematic suggestions.

The VPR is an opportunity to “try before you buy” a number of wines released by Vintages the following Saturday. Taste some selected expensive, highly-reputed wines that might not cross your palate otherwise and also have the chance to discover wines offering exceptional price/quality ratios and affordable lesser-known premium quality products that are well-made bargains.
