Wine Experiences

If you love wine and would like to learn more about it then you should join one of my evening wine experiences held in Toronto. I cater to all levels of wine knowledge. Thousands of wine lovers have attended these experiences over the last eleven years and have received knowledge that will last them a lifetime.

Upcoming Sessions

Wine and Cheese and Wine and Chocolate

Experience an evening enjoying a wine tasting many different wines.

Each evening is hosted by Steve Thurlow at his Harbourfront Suite in downtown Toronto, which provides a spectacular view of the Toronto Islands and Lake Ontario and creates a beautiful background setting during the evening.

To complement the Experience, a presentation will be projected onto a 10ft screen displaying wine region maps, images of wineries and images of some spectacular wine country landscapes.

Wine and food matching is always covered and most of the wines will be available at LCBO and many will be on Steve's Top 50 Best Value Wines list. All sessions are from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

The Art of Wine and Cheese

November 14th 6 Places Left
and January 16th

Have you ever wondered which wine would go great with your favourite cheese? Well this Experience is a great opportunity to learn the art and science of matching wine and food. Eight cheeses matched to eight wines.


We will also cover how to taste wine on the basic level, and how acidity, oak, tannins, colour, fruit flavours and other components impact the wine, its finished quality and how it matches with food.

You will understand what to look for in a quality wine, and you will learn the lingo to better communicate your wine tastes to others. $67.95

The Art of Wine and Chocolate

Date to be arranged

It’s rare to meet someone who does not adore chocolate and most of us love wine, but most wine books caution against serving wine with chocolate! “Chocoholic” Steve Thurlow has found ways to match these two sensual pleasures together!

Enjoy a special matching of the finest chocolates from Daniel Le Chocolat Belge with the wines that best complement them.

Maybe you will be surprised to learn that chocolate and wine are both sources of minerals and other components that are indispensable in maintaining your physical health. $69.95

I will organize a Wine and Chocolate session once I have 6 people interested. Let me know if this appeals and we can set up a session.

Send an Email to Steve to get more info. and to register to attend a future session.


A Gift of Wine that Lasts a Lifetime

We all know someone...a spouse, a brother, perhaps a couple in our social circle who would like to learn just a little more about wine.

Now you can give them a gift which will last a lifetime and which maybe will also improve your social life as a bonus. Gift Certificates are available for both The Art of Wine and Cheese and The Art of Wine and Chocolate and are transferable to a convenient date.

Send an Email to Steve and he will be happy to arrange for a gift certificate.
