The Toronto Wine & Spirit Festival welcomes the summer season with a weekend of outdoor tastings, featuring more than 40 vendors in the realms of beer, wine, vodka, cider, sake, cocktails, and more. With two one-session tickets ($22 each) to this year's event, you and a guest will get admission to the five-hour session of your choice. Each ticket comes with five drink/food vouchers ($5 total value) and a sampling glass. Lap up libations in the original fermenting cellar of the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery while ignoring the plaintive moans of James Worts's ghost, or delve into delicious dining with a gourmet fare fair at The Boiler House. While taste buds are kept occupied by the slate of savoury drinks and elegant edibles, ears can eat up live music from some of Toronto's local soundsmiths. Throughout the weekend, complimentary seminars will be held on a variety of topics, including spirit selection and wine pairings.
As festivalgoers soak in the summer sun and the wealth of wines, they can also marvel at the majestic Victorian-era architecture that is the defining staple of the Distillery District. Bound along the brick-lined boulevards from tent to tent, infusing yourself with the Type-A grape blood that turns heroes into villains and villains into puppies at the Toronto Wine & Spirit Festival.
