An example of some of the world class, highly esteemed wineries featured in the show include:
With winemaker Felipe Stahlschmidt and Export Director Julian Orti of esteemed winery Pascual Toso of Argentina, recognized as one of this countries oldest and prestigious wineries. A stunning tasting of 12 varietals, including Malbecs, Cabernet Sauvignon, red blends and the newly released Barrancas were tasted at the National Club,in Toronto hosted by EuroVintage Wines & Spirits.
This special edition Cabernet Sauvignon and Mabec blend was made to celebrate the wineries 125th anniversary. Only 125 bottles were produced. A selection of these stunning wines are available through LCBO and Vintages. They are exquisite. The high altitudes, warm temperatures and soils produce fruity, fresh and smooth wines.
One of Italy’s many claims to fame, is of course their very own sparkling wine, growing in popularity day by day. Not only is it a wine, but it is a place, and it is a grape and there is a bit of confusion out there about this delightful and delicious bubbly and that is Prosecco. There is much more to this bubbly, with an interesting history, than many might know. We are excited to share with everyone at the show a very special winery, located in the Friuli region in northeastern Italy, the wine Castel Pitars winery. Here is a wine producer that dates back to 1510, steeped in tradition, now run by four brothers producing an exciting array of wines, along with their Prosecco, wines of indigenous grapes, international varietals and unique blends. Pitars Wines imported and distributed exclusively by VDF Importers of Fine Wines.
Founded in 1885 by François Rémy, Rémy Pannier is the Loire Valley’s single largest wine producer, accounting for about 15% of all Loire Valley wine production, and with markets in over 40 countries worldwide. This progressive winery offers three AOC wines including the best selling Rosé in Ontario – Rosé D’Anjou, Muscadet and more recently, Sauvignon Blanc. Remy Pannier wines imported by EuroVintage Wines & Spirits.
