The Pinot Party is Back – Monday July 16th

Join us for an evening of Pinot Noir – A celebration of the world’s best grape

Get your tickets, Pinot fans! The second annual Pinot Party will be held on Monday, July 16th. What better way to spend a summer night than sipping Pinot Noir from Canada and around the world with fellow extreme wine enthusiasts and some of the city’s top sommeliers. Taste wines from more than a dozen top producers alongside local charcuterie from artisan sausage maker Angelo Bean.

And this is exciting – for the first time – Toronto tasters will sit down to some of the finest Pinot Noirs from across the country. From the Okanagan to Niagara to Prince Edward County to Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley – CAPS is bringing the country’s best Pinots to the table for all to taste and assess alongside wines from France, New Zealand, Oregon and beyond.

Need a little extra schooling? We’ll be kicking off the event with a Master Class led by UK journalist and respected wine guru, Dr. Jamie Goode.

“As President of the Ontario Chapter of the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers, I am pleased to welcome Jamie Goode to the second installment of the “Pinot Party” at which we will showcase some of Ontario’s most exclusive pinot noirs in a global context. I hope you will join us in support of Ontario’s sommelier community so that we may continue to provide local programming and be a source for competition and camaraderie in the wine industry.”Sara d’Amato, WineAlign
