About this Event
Join us for an evening in Burgundy, as we host a tasting of wines from the revered winemaking region. This structured tasting and informal discussion will cover the history and complex terroir of the land where Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. Try a range of rare wines, learn how to decipher their labels, how to best maneuver complex wine lists, and find your new favorites.
Halpern Enterprises has been in the business of importing fine wines and spirits into Canada for over 65 years. Today they are one of the oldest in Ontario. Founded by Harold Halpern, a Pharmacist by education, it started small but quickly developed strong relationships with a few European and New World wine producers who have grown alongside them. Today they represent over 175 wineries and distilleries from all around the world.
