Welcome to Winetasters of Toronto. We are one of Toronto's oldest and largest wine tasting group. Winetasters is a non-profit group, operated by its members. Through this site, you can learn about the group, view some upcoming events, and browse through summaries of past events.
From September til June, Winetasters holds 9 “single blind” tastings. These tastings feature wines from all over the world and cover the entire wine spectrum. We try to alternate between reds and whites, and include both horizontal (various wines, same vintage) and vertical (same wine, various vintages) tastings. Many of the wines come from Wintasters’ extensive cellar, which has been built up over the last twenty years and stored under ideal conditions. These monthly tastings should be fascinating to almost everyone, from beginner to connoisseur.
Winetasters members are young and old; tall and short; singles, couples, even the odd family. No matter who you are or what you do, Winetasters is for you. Our common denominator is people who have a yearning to learn more about wine. We have around 350 members, but we are always looking to expand our membership.
If you wish to check out Winetasters, sign up for our Newsletter (click on the link near the bottom of the menu on the right). We will send you are monthly mailings by e-mail. You can sign up for events, at guest rates. Members have priority, but if there is space - and there usually is - you can attend events. Note that we do not confirm reservations - we will contact you only if there is no space available. After reserving a spot, just show up unless we phone you.
Winetasters also hopes to provide information about other events that might be of interest to wine lovers in the Toronto area. This site is available as a resource to the Toronto wine community – and anyone with information that would be of interest, should let us know. (See the Outside Events page for instructions.)
The setting is the Burgundy Room of the North York Memorial Community Hall, 5110 Yonge Street (under the library). We recommend that tasters take the TTC: the North York Centre subway stop is handy. If you insist on driving, there's parking in the building (enter off Beecroft, one block west of Yonge), and meter parking on Beecroft after 6:00 p.m.
