2015 – Churchill Cellars Annual Portfolio Tasting

Churchill Cellars

For the third year now, Churchill Cellars has been running its annual portfolio tasting in the Ed Mirvish Theatre on Yonge Street. The venue is impressive in that the lobby with its marble winding stairways lead to the second floor.

Invitees are welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine (Brut Reserva Segura Viudas from San Sadurni di Noya, Catalonia, Spain). The tables are arranged by county and region, culminating with the Ontario winery that the agency represents.

Most of the beverages in the tasting were general list and a number of Vintages products.
Churchill Cellars selects products that are priced for middle aged palates, and which represent good value.

I tasted approximately 95 per cent of all the brands and that my list reflects wines which represent good to excellent value.
