'Wine 101'

Here I am back on one of my favourite!

The GTA West Chapter of CDECA closed off the year with a wine tasting and information evening which covered everything from what food to serve with what type of wine through to proper storage and serving temperatures. 

My husband, Allan offered to share information on how to design for wine storage and covered different options ranging from simple racking up to amazing wine cellars.  Allan Wisby, Certified WSET Consultant, and owner of Oakville Wine Cellars  also consults on creating custom Wine Storage options and is currently working with a colleague to import wines from different countries that cannot be purchased here in Canada through LCBO.  Excellent for collectors as well as gift giving.

To enhance our enjoyment of "wine 101" we were treated to extremely tasty food selections.  Paring food with the correct type of food makes all the difference in whether it is enjoyable or not so much!

Everyone went home with detailed and  informative packages on all aspects of wine, including some of his own recipes.  (he cooks too!)  To end off the evening there were several draws for wine items - we all love the chance to win something.

Once again, here I am writing about how we are fortunate to enjoy refreshments while learning.  I love this business!!

A great evening was had by all in attendance.  Thanks Allan..

The Wine Master - my hubby, Allan
