Australia: Back in the Spotlight - May 25th, 2019 – Price: $45.00

Since we opened our doors in 1991, Australian wines have held a special place in our hearts.

Join us for the evening as we take a stroll down memory lane and open bottles from our favourite Aussie producers. This event will feature a selection of back-vintage bottles, as well as new and exciting Aussie wines that have earned their place in the spotlight.


France: The Classics and More - June 22nd, 2019 – Price: $45.00

French wine represents over 30% of the wines that we import, so it is only fair that we dedicate an entire evening to this Country. In addition to the world class wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, we will also highlight our favourite wines from the Loire Valley, Alsace, Languedoc and more. Crystal from Peasant Cheese will also provide us with a selection of French Cheeses and Charcuterie to help guide us through our evening of all things France.
