Overview

We are one of the Greater Toronto Areas’ oldest non-profit wine clubs offering members unrivaled tastings. We keep our own cellar which not only gives us a unique selection of wines to support our tastings but also lets us offer tastings at a very reasonable cost as we do not have to bear the burden of current market prices. We also provide a chance to network with other wine enthusiasts and collectors, and an opportunity to learn more about wine from various wine professionals who lead our tastings.


Winetasters Une Soirée en France

Monday, November 29, 7:00 PM

Monday, November 29th Vintage Conservatory, Yorkville  7 PM— Imagine yourself on vacation in London. You stumble into the famed Berry Brothers & Rudd’s shop in fashionable St James’s St, looking for good wine. Their selection is outstanding and the merchant is so impressed with your knowledge of Bordeaux (or what she calls Claret) that she invites you to an exclusive dinner at the shop that evening.  It’s a joint venture with one of the dining clubs they have supplied over the centuries and will have a classic French theme:  Grower Champagne, Premier Cru Chablis, Mature Claret.  In the best EU communitaire spirit, it will end with a top Mosel Auslese with dessert.

With a start, you wake up and see your open laptop and realize what prompted the daydream … you were looking at Toronto Winetasters November Dinner – Une Sourée en France (with a détour to the Mosel).  It will be held at the Yorkville location of the Vintage Conservatory, where we have had several highly-successful dinners.  The event will be held in a private room, and of course, COVID protocols will be followed, including proof of vaccination.

As the Vintage Conservatory is a private club, you may bring – with no corkage – additional wines from your cellar to share with friends and to supplement the evening should you so wish. Read more …

Our Extensive Cellar

Fortunately, our Winetasters know that the wine only gets better with age and our cellar is resting nicely, waiting to re-emerge for us.  In the meantime, our buying committee has put a tremendous amount of work into planning 10 years’ worth of tastings!  They have studied our 3000+ cellar thoroughly and made an enticing 10-year plan for most of our wines.

You can see more of our 10-year plan developed before COVID. We are in the process of updating this.


Membership renewals

We do hope that you all consider maintaining your membership with us despite the current restriction on gatherings as we still have costs associated with storing the wine, other overhead expenses, and wine purchasing for the gaps. 

Click here to purchase or renew your membership.

For this year’s membership, we are offering a  rate of $55 per person or $100 per couple.   We plan to host all of our virtual events on our usual dates, which are the last Wednesday of every month, so please block your calendars now. We will also have in-person events and hybrid virtual/in-person events.

Please let us know your thoughts on our new plans for our club, and we hope you will continue your membership with us.  We all look forward to being able to meet again and share our love of wine as we always have, and hopefully, our plan to adapt allows us all to feel that we still can enjoy that camaraderie, even while we are apart.

Stay safe and stay sane!
