Michael Vaughn has been kind enough to extend the offer of 3 free issues and 50% off his LCBO buying guide, Vintage Assessments. This is Canada's #1 insider's buying guide, which is published 25 times a year. Created by international wine authority Michael Vaughan, weekly National Post wine columnist since 1999. This saving of $42.50 is made to Toronto Wine Meetup members only.
I can personally tell you that when it comes to buying wine at the LCBO I have followed Michael's guide for a few years now. For every Vintages release he sends a concise, printable "shopping list" of the best value wines as well as a full written report on everything new hitting the shelves. This is an invaluable guide for those of you who buy wine at the LCBO.
To get this simply go the www.fbti.org and click on the SommelierService logo as you scroll down on the left side. The password is "somser". Follow the steps from here to receive your free 3 issues and discount for an annual membership to Vintage Assessments.
The Toronto Wine Meetup will be back shortly. Kerri is actively trying to find the perfect new location and one we won't have to change again for a while. However, I've been piling so much other work on her I don't knwo where she'll find the time! Stay tuned.
The Toronto Wine Meet-up group is a very informal way to educate people from different walks of life with an interest in wine, from newbie to oenophile. We meet monthly and are hosted by wine experts for a fun evening trying a few different kinds of wine. No wine snobs allowed! We also want to open the group up to a variety of people with a variety of interests. Toronto has so much to offer and we want to create an environment where we can enjoy many types of social activities where we can enjoy our beautiful city and also meet some new friends.
