Colour Splash! Wine Tasting
Saturday 29 April 2023, 3:30 to 5 pm
John B. Aird Gallery, 906 Queen Street West, Toronto
The Ontario Society of Artists was founded in 1872 and the very next year, the first commercial winery was established in Ontario's Niagara region. Can that be a coincidence?
To complement the theme of the OSA's 149th Annual Open Juried Art Exhibition, Colour Splash!, sign up for this adventure in the many colours and styles of wine... from white to orange, and rosé to red... and from sparkling to still, and dry to sweet.
Josh Heuman—juror, independent curator, and wine expert—has selected the wines inspired by some artworks in the exhibition, and will speak briefly about the artworks before pouring each wine and leading an interactive tasting of 6 wine samples.
Your registration fee of $55 covers sampling six specially chosen Ontario wines and a selection of cheeses.
