GW x Loïc X Paris Paris Warehouse Party

Okay okay wow wow wow.

We are obsessed with the natural wine dream bar that is Bar Loïc in Montreal. They are coming to Toronto to throw a party with us. We rented our dream warehouse. We are filling it with hot fire DJs, snacks by Loïc x Paris Paris and an exceptional array of natural wines. It is going to be maybe The Best Party We Have Ever Thrown and we are Pretty Earnestly Excited About It. Tickets are $10 and here.

GW Presents: A Night at the Movies!

We are so super beyond excited to do a collaboration with dream theatre Hot Docs on Thursday October 11th!

Join us as we pair our favourite cult-classic movie clips with the natural wine that best represents them! LOL WHAT. We know! Think of it like an education hour, but with the supplier teacher throwing on a top film between learning and drinking. Like a sleep over where none of us in fact sleep over. We are kicking off the show at 8:30 pm. It is $33 for members, $36 for non-members, which is SO CHEAP because we wanted to make it super accessible and easy. It will include 5 wines, a bunch of fun movie clips, us telling jokes and the chance to hang out before and after sipping sweet natural wine in velour seats, which is what we want for you and us.

Basically what we mean is it is going to be wild and free and fun and check the poster below designed by the talented Carmen Lew and check the hot docs page here for way more details and tickets.

Paradise Grapevine// Menalon Lives/ a september experience

Evelyn A. - Yelp certified - said it best in July 2013, "when you're looking for a humid backyard garage to fill with your friends, look no further." We have been obsessed with Menalon, conveniently located at Bloor and Shaw, from the moment we happened upon it almost 7 years ago. We would like you to admire its facade, below. 

 wow.

wow.

When you entered you were met by a Greek couple as old as time who would happily fill a plastic pitcher of light beer to the brim as you awaited your saganaki, flaming cheese. Inside, the bright harsh lights were privy to many moments in time, though perhaps the jewel of menalon lay in its back patio, which felt like your uncle's garage in scarborough, but in downtown Toronto. What we mean is, it was perfect.  

 oh wow. 

oh wow. 

Nicole had a wild dream of throwing a natural wine party here since the first days of Grape Witches. We finally started seriously thinking about how to convince them to let us take it over when we heard it had been bought. Naturally, we were exceptionally devastated, Menalon being a refuge for second dates you weren't ready to introduce to all your friends for a good half a century. We sulked through their renovations, only to find ourselves wrong. Yes, we'll say it louder. We were wrong OKAY. Menalon had an incredible run, but then Paradise Grapevine was born. The brain child of Christian Davis and David Everett, Paradise Grapevine is not only a name we wish we thought of, but also a nice place with exceptionally nice natural wine and beer.

 issa nice place

issa nice place

So then our favourite place was combined with our favourite drinks and we were like OKAYYYYYYY now we reallyyyyyy have to throw a party.

We are so so super excited to announce our MENALON LIVES natural wine back-2-school party at Paradise Grapevine on Thursday September 13th.

We will have an education hour going through six of our favourite natural wines from 7-8 pm. Tickets for that here. The party will kick off at 8 pm and go till 1 am featuring some amazing wine that we private ordered from around the world. Things like 2naturkindr, weingut brand, le coste and francois st-lo. They are here. We have one case of everything. We want to share them with you.

In October we have some very big and wild and FUN events, but this one is all about an intimate space sharing small amounts of some of the most special wine we have been able to feature yet. UGH YEAH.

It's going to be good. Greek snacks. Natural wine. Very good music. Summer isn't over yet, get into our backyard.

GW x Stereo Live: Baroque Music + Nice Wine in a Nice Place!

OMG! Very nice and special collaboration with one of our favourite humans and musicians. 

WHAT: GW x Stereo Live (aka very talented violinists) 

WHERE: The Campbell House (historic museum @ queen and university!)

WHEN: Monday May 21st, doors at 7 pm

So, you should know that Edwin Huizinga is one of our favourite people. He looks like a giant viking who would save you from a legitimate animal attack, but with the warmest eyes, and biggest heart and oh yes he is also an incredible baroque violinist. His dream is to share old, powerful music that touches his soul with people who might not hear it. To bring dynamic energy to the beauty of classical music aka CLASSICAL MUSIC ACTUALLY SUPER THRILLING NOT JUST FOR OLD PPL.  Do you not believe us?? We dare you to watch this video and not clutch your heart. 

We can't keep up with all of his cool projects like TafelmusikThe Wooden Sky and Fire and Grace. We are thrilled to team up with him for Stereo Live, his labour of love with violist Keith Hamm (COC Orchestra) at the Campbell House aka that rly nice-looking historic home at Queen and University you have always looked at with wonder.

Why not come inside with us on May 21st! Edwin and Keith will be joined by violin legend Mark Fewer to play many strange and beautiful things! We will listen to each piece of music through our untrained and thirsty ears weaving a story we will then re-tell through taste! What! Wow! Great! Wildly talented musicians, special elixirs and a Nice Place. Tickets (available here!) are $25 (so cheap!!!) for the performance. Paired wines available by the glass. Come get cultured with us and then tell your tinder date who will be very impressed! We are also impressed! We are obsessed with this idea. Come dream dreams with us.
