Wines, vines and grapes, yes please! Toronto’s close proximity to two wonderful wine regions – Niagara and Prince Edward County – opens the door to plenty of oenophile-based group activities. Pay the vineyards a visit with New World Wine Tours. Choose from the boutique tour company’s fun, informative group experiences that include winery visits, tastings, gourmet lunch and transportation, or have them curate a customized outing. There’s even the option to fly your VIPs in and out of wine country.
If wine in the city – or beer, sake or spirits — better fits the agenda, the company also offers private sommelier tastings. Held in the beautiful members-only tasting room at Fine Wine Reserve, or a venue of your choice, the events have serious educational cred, teaching guests how to taste like a pro while indulging in deliciously paired food and wine-geek activities like blind-tasting competitions and cultural drinking games. New to the company is Eating Through TO for organized food crawls and events that explore the culinary fabric of the city.
