Last year's Wine Fair at the old Cafe Taste

Last year’s Wine Fair at the old Cafe Taste

Greetings to lovers of VQA and local cheeses!

I’m pleased to host once again the Ontario Wine Fair in the village where cafeTaste:EVENTS began; Parkdale!

For those who haven’t joined us yet for the Ontario Wine Fair, we began the initiative to promote what cafeTaste focused on: local wine and cheese.  What made our Wine Fair different was allowing guests to not have to purchase tasting tickets for every sample, instead opting for an inclusive door-fee for our guests.  From there they then could enjoy a ‘virtual tour’ of varied Ontario Wine regions and winemakers – having them all under one roof allows you to taste through wines otherwise you’d have to spend days travelling across Southern Ontario to sample, and allow you to make orders from the wineries that day – a one-stop tasting tour!

This is the 6th year of presenting this initiative of local wines and cheese, however this is the first Winter Edition.  For those who’ve attending our previous Fairs, this one is in a smaller venue, across the street from our original location.  This years address is 1267 Queen Street West, at a coffee bar called “The Mascot”, and the date is Sunday January 20th.

The Winter Edition includes 15 wineries pouring up to 70 Ontario wines, accompanied by dozens of local cheeses.  Like all cafeTaste:EVENTS functions, we strive to get consumers access to local, as well as be informative about the products available at the fair.

Enjoy an afternoon or evening with us, taste and learn about local wines and cheeses, and vote for your favourites for the People’s Choice Awards!

There are two windows for tasting, 1-5 PM OR 6-10 PM

Tickets are $50 in advance.  Tickets are in advance sales only at

Space is extremely limited for this premium event, and all sales are final.
