We are Nicole & Krysta, The Grape Witches. We are obsessed with flavour, story telling and natural wine. We throw monthly natural wine events and educational seminars big and small in Toronto. Join us.
One week today!!!! We are obsessed with Dundas institution Taste of China. 🌿 Before we evennnn finished our first natural wine takeover dinner this past winter, we were already plotting the next. (It was that joyously fun, uplifting + delicious) 💕It’s coming!! Our second TOC Chinese Banquet is in one week. 🍤 Join us for an education hour of Glou Glou stars, feast with us in a multi coursed veg or meat experience or do it all! Link in bio. 🔥🔥🔥 Thank god as bok choy and Lambrusco belong together. @frankcornelissen_winery Susucaru and spicy tofu have been writing weird emails together for months. @weingut_brand Riesling wont stop DMing duck wraps and it’s becoming a problem. Who will noodles slither up to next?!✨🍇🌿💫
The biodynamically raised cows of @meinklang_farm would like you to know that our latest newsletter is live and can be found in the link in our bio. 🐂
Please note that staying up till 4 am the night before your morning flight home IS fun, but not necessarily recommended! 🌱 A photo from last week at @strekov1075 when we were cute and wide eyed from seeing so many of our favourite hillsides, vineyard sites and producers in person. So much generosity, so many moving wines. Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia we will return! Can’t wait to share all we learned with you. 😽 Shout out to top travel companion @nicoleraufeisen (find her @littleoak_bar and @the_ostrichclub in Halifax!) and @adriennefriesen. ❤️❤️❤️ Check our saved stories for producer highlights. ✨
We have always loved the precise and powerful wines of @gutoggau. Now we know why. A passioned and inspiring approach to biodynamics. Find these special wines at our parties and literally every good place wine is found. If you are ever in the region their small restaurant and tavern is not to be missed. ✨💕🌿#gutogwow

Interrupting regularly scheduled Middle European programming to announce a little festival we are delighted to be a part of! Crystal and Tara Luxmore aka the @beersisters are obsessed with the very best beer and the people who make it. 🍺👯♀️ Last year they launched @wildthingsfest to bring together lovers of wild fermented beer, wine and cider as so many of the flavours overlap and drinks are a spectrum of joy to be enjoyed responsibly in a nice place! 🥂🍻🍾🍷 This year they have invited us to curate the wine selection and do a bit of education and we said YEAH DUH and it is coming up on June 2nd. 🥤 Drink nice wine with us! 🥂 Watch us drink a beer! 👀👅 Explore the world of cider! 🍐🍎🍏 Get a cool glass just like this one! And more! Tickets through their ig link - and ours right now! - at @wildthingsfest. 🥰✨❤️✨
Incredible tasting and visit with Ewald Tscheppe at Werlitsch. ✨ Show stopingly beautiful wines and place. If you see them, get them. 🔥🔥🔥
Zsolt Sütó, @strekov1075, cultivates 12 hectares of vines without compromise in the village of Strekov, Slovakia. His wines are as joyous as he is. The most special day. ✨💫🌿
