Last weekend, a bunch of bloggers got together at Melissa’s (The Sweet Escape) fun and colourful loft for a wine tasting event sponsored by local favourites Union Wines and Linda Modern Thai.¬†Lucky us, right?
The first wine¬†was¬†Union Gold and this stack of white plates didn’t stay empty for long.
Andrew von Teichman from Union Wines was on hand to teach¬†us about four varieties of wines (gold, white, noir, & red) and to make sure our glasses were never empty! Union is a virtual winery owned and operated by Andrew and his partner Allan Jackson (former owner of Jackson-Triggs), and it sources all grapes from the Niagara¬†region. All Union wine varieties are¬†less than $20 a bottle and are available at select LCBO stores.
The chefs¬†from Toronto’s Linda Modern Thai served up some delicious nibbles¬†that paired extremely well with the four wines we tasted over the course of the afternoon.
Union Wines and Linda Modern Thai¬†made an excellent pair.
Melissa’s home has so many beautiful vintage details.
Melissa’s¬†milk glass collection looks amazing on her floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.
Read Melissa’s recap of the afternoon¬†(her photos are much more colourful than mine) and see her beautiful home in Covet Garden Home. Thanks for¬†hosting, Melissa, and thanks for spoiling us, Union & Linda!
