The Ontario Wine Society (Toronto) Presents “Ontario Virtual Wineries” will be held April 11 6:00pm reception, 6:30pm tasting at U of T Faculty Club, 41 Willcocks St. in Toronto, Ontario. Virtual wineries have been around for nearly two decades around the world, but they are relatively new to the Ontario wine industry. By producing wine at a shared facility, without a “bricks and mortar” retail store, these virtual wineries are championing a return of the artisanal craft of winemaking. Sharon Marks, President of the OWS Niagara Chapter, will facilitate the evening as we taste wines from 5 different virtual wineries, and compare wines available only through the LCBO to those which are available on-line. Each virtual winery’s winemaker will be present to share their views on the pros and cons of being virtual and provide their personal winemaking philosophy. Nyarai Cellars – Steve Byfield, Twenty Twenty-Seven Cellars – Kevin Panagapka, Generations Wine – Andrew von Teichman, Ross – Paul Ross, 100 Marks Wines – Jeff Hundertmark. Admission is $ 47 each – member and one guest, $57 each – addition guests and non-members.
