Christmas In Hawaii Wine Tasting

Christmas in Hawaii! Virtual Wine Tasting with The Wine Ladies

We had the opportunity to host a virtual wine tasting for the Oakville Wine Enthusiasts Club. This event replaced their annual Christmas Gala due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Although not a “party” in the normal sense of the word, everyone had fun and we tasted some lovely wines. Peter Sharp, from Select Wine Merchants provided some wonderful wines for the members to taste and enjoy, including the Telmo Rodriguez/Blancos de Rueda, the 2019 Basa Rueda DO $ 18.99 from Spain and the Speri / Valpolicella Classico 2019 Valpolicella Classico Valpolicella Classico DOC $ 21.99 from Italy.

Lots of great prizes and games were part of the fun too.

If you are interested in a similar event for your club, restaurant or business, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.

This is an edited version of the 1.5 hour event that took place on Dec 4th, 2020 with over 100 participants. 

About Us 

The Oakville Wine Enthusiasts Club (OWEC) has been operating as a not for profit wine appreciation club since 2005.  We meet on the last Friday of every month, except for July and August.  Over the years we have established a reputation with wine producers and brokers alike of providing a warm and inviting audience to present their wines.  OWEC members support these presenters by purchasing wine – and purchase wine we do!  Last year alone, members purchased in excess of $100,000. at our monthly tastings and special events. 
In addition to our monthly tastings, our committee of volunteers organize periodic special events that could be dinner and wine pairings, wine country showcases and even road trips. As part of our wine tasting year, we also hold a formal Christmas Gala usually in late November or early December.  This event attracts 300 plus members and guests and showcases 12 or more wine stations along with live music, seated dinner and lots of fun surprises.

As we continue to offer a venue for new and upcoming wineries and brokers, we also celebrate and support our “old friends” who have supported us along the way.  You can always look forward to tasting and learning about wine varietals from regions both close to home and across the world. We hope you can join us as we discover new tastes and revisit old favourites.

Celebrate Malbec World Day with The Wine Ladies on line with our own ZOOM wine party. Covid-19

Throwback Thursday. Jan 2014

The Wine Ladies discover the Pisco Trail.

Pisco es Peru… as is world class gastronomy, spectacular landscape, incredible people and of course Machu Picchu! In a word, our adventure to Peru, a world of hidden treasures was magical. Our mandate as we landed on Peruvian soil, in the capital city of Lima, located in a desert, surrounded by surreal spaces of sand dunes was to discover the “Pisco Trail”. Pisco, you see is the name of Peru’s national drink, a grape spirit, a wonderful elixir that is made with grapes from vast, green vineyards that flourish in the heart of the arid deserts of Peru. Our exploration of this traditional spirit that dates back hundreds of years was a delectable journey of a drink of exquisite qualities. There is a story to Pisco, we enjoy the unraveling of its secrets and its mysteries as shared with us by the proprietors of several Bodegas. Be sure to ask for Pisco on your next evening out, as Pisco is the new rising star at the bar!
