Whether you prefer pinto grigio or pinto noir, you’re sure to love these four wine tasting destinations in Toronto

Toronto is a great place to enjoy both local and international wine. Though it doesn’t have the name recognition of a place like Napa or Bordeaux, the city is a hidden gem when it comes to delectable varietals. While there are many places you can sip on a well-balanced vintage, there are a few spots that stand out above the rest. Here are four of the best destinations in Toronto. 

Chez Nous Wine Bar

Located in the Riverdale neighborhood of Downtown Toronto, Chez Nous is the place to go if you want to experience the best of local wines. This romantic little spot features wines only from Ontario, giving oenophiles a chance to taste the best of what the province has to offer. Tastings are paired with selections of meats and cheeses that are chosen to specifically highlight the wines you choose.

Archive

Located at 909 Dundas Street in Little Italy, Archive is another great place to get a taste of local wine. The bulk of their selection is made up with Ontario wines, showcasing some of the best Canada has to offer. At Archive, it’s not just about the wine—the decor will make you want to come back again and again. Amazing European-inspired small plates will have your mouth watering, too.

Reds Wine Tavern

The wine at this upscale tavern in the financial district is incredible, with bottles from around the world. Paired with an extensive collection of glass pours (over 20!), Reds is an incredible place to enjoy a drink. But it doesn’t stop at the libations. Reds Wine Tavern boasts a scratch kitchen where everything is baked and made fresh daily, featuring dishes like the signature roast chicken, which is marinated in-house for 48 hours.

SIP Wine Bar

Located in the stylish Yonge and Eglington neighborhood, SIP Wine Bar is the best place for a rustic, authentic wine tasting. Designed to look and feel like something you would find in a small Italian village, enjoying a glass at this ristorante will transport you to a simpler time. Pair a top-notch old-world red with a rustic wood fired pizza or some delectable antipasti and enjoy one of the hottest spots in Toronto.
