Sir Neil & Lady Pixie Shaw and David & Torunn Banks hosted the Levin Wines Launch in Toronto at the renowned Canoe Restaurant, on the 54th floor of the TD Building.
The views were as spectacular as the guest list! Over 100 of the glitterateri of Toronto, along with lead dancers and the Artistic Director from the National Toronto Ballet and Rob Jull from leading Ontario wine company, Vinifera.
The Levin Wine flowed, along with Levin Sauvignon Blanc, Levin Rose and Levin Gamay, David and Lynne Levin were thrilled to introduce the 2009 MISTER L Sauvignon Blanc and the 2009 MADAME L Gamay. Levin Wines were enthusiastically received and we are looking forward to making Toronto an annual event on our calendar.
WOW – The Virgin Wines Team sure know how to throw a tasting!
Having flown back from our LEVIN Winery in the Loire Valley the previous night, (fresh from treading our new vintage of Madame L), Winemaker Benjamin Delobel, David Levin and I were looking forward to showing off our new range of LEVIN Sauvignon Blanc, LEVIN Rose & LEVIN Gamay.
What we hadn’t been prepared for was the incredible number of people, their range of tastes and interest and their enthusiasm for not just tasting, but soaking up information and details on our organically grown wines, our winemaking process and of course the people behind LEVIN Wines – US!
There were no stingy tasting measures here, oodles of wine, lots of other very knowledagble winemakers and plenty of space to move around, swill and swirl, not much spitting out to be seen, but with the range of wines presented, not suprising! We can’t wait for the next tasting……………………!
