Telmo Rodriguez Education Hour

Telmo Rodriguez Education Hour


As fall arrives, some of the world’s best winemakers begin to descend on Toronto and we can’t wait to bring them to you. It is a great honour to announce our Education Hour with the King of Spain*, Telmo Rodriguez on Thursday September 19th at the Burdock Warehouse, 201 Geary.

If you don’t know Telmo, you are in for a treat. Telmo has been making some of Spain’s very best wines for 30 years. Long before it was accepted, Telmo championed native grapes, undiscovered regions, organic and biodynamic farming and bush vines. His world-class native varietal wines were extremely influential to us as young sommeliers and a generation of young Spanish growers who came after him. He is a whip-smart firecracker and a delight to listen to. He *never* comes to Canada and it doesn’t even feel real that we get him for a night. BUT WE DO! We have put together an incredible line-up of wines showcasing the diverse terroir he works with across the country.

Join us for this extra-special winemaker-led 90 minute education hour featuring eight wines.
