A Food & Wine Experience like no other

The guiding principle of the Gourmet Games is a food and wine experience that goes beyond simply consuming food and wine. It aims to educate, excite, and challenge. Wineries and distilleries from 18 global regions will sample over 75 products at the Games. With many 90+ rated wines in the room, the Gourmet Games offers an array of exemplary taste profiles to satisfy every palate.

The Gourmet Games brings these three elements together in the Classic Chic setting of The Gladstone:

Wineries and Distilleries from around the world: There will be 18 skilled and passionate ambassadors from Chile to Australia, Spain to Napa Valley, and beyond on hand to pour and talk to you about their products. Our suppliers will bring their best from 93-point rated Napa Cabs to 96-point rated Italian artisanal liquor. See the full list here.

Expert guides: Sit in on a food and wine pairing demonstration with WineAlign editors John Szabo MS and Sara d’Amato. Or learn classic mixology from cocktail masters Robin Goodfellow and Michael Webster from the uber cool Bar Raval.

Cruise the tasting gallery: Engage in our sensory scavenger hunt; a fun way to discover the spectrum is flavours and aromas that abound at the Gourmet Games. Or just take your time tasting through the room at your own pace.

Try and Buy . . . for less!

Nobody has to go home empty-handed at the Gourmet Games. Special for subscribers to WineAlign, every ticket to the Games will receive a $25 gift certificate* redeemable towards a purchase of consignment and private order products the night of the show. Every wine and spirit being poured at the Gourmet Games is available for sale. Many products can be delivered to your home or office and others are available at the LCBO.
