Our first event! Exclusive Wolf Blass premium wine tasting with winemaker Chris Hatcher at Canoe! - 23 June, 2010
We’re very pleased to announce our first WineAlign community event. Members are invited to an exclusive Wolf Blass premium wine tasting with winemaker Chris Hatcher at Canoe. This is not a public event and attendance is limited to WineAlign members. Cost is $65 and only a limited number of tickets are available here: http://winealignwolfblass.eventbrite.com .
I have tasted with Wolf Blass winemaker Chris Hatcher twice, and few winemakers in the world are so down to earth, so well spoken and so influential. He has quietly shaped three major trends in Australian wine; the quest for regionality, the quest for elegance and the use of screwcaps. Chris is generally considered to be one of Australia’s premium wine makers and one of the country’s most respected wine show judges. Quite a feat for a preacher’s son who was warned that alcohol is evil.
I invite WineAlign members to join me at an exclusive and intimate tasting that demonstrates Chris’ talent and success – the Wolf Blass Gold Label regional varietals, the incredible value Grey Labels, and the ultra-premium Black Label and Platinum reds. The sit down, guided tasting will be followed by an informal mingle with small plates from one of Toronto’s great chefs, Anthony Walsh, and a surprise mystery wine or two.
Please join us for the first WineAlign community event.
