2016 Fall Cavinona Portfolio Tasting at The Terroni Restaurant –Toronto

wine tasting

Cavinona is an agency that specializes in small Italian winery offerings from all Italian wine producing provinces except Val d’Aosta. The agency represents well-selected artisan wineries that pay special attention to produce wines, which reflect the terroir of their region.

32 winery owners/representatives sampled their products. The agency accepts case orders only (12 or 6 bottles) and prices quoted are for one case plus $ 12.50 for delivery of the first case. Subsequent cases are delivered at a reduced rate. More than five cases are free.

My recommendations start at 88+/100 due to space restrictions.
For orders call, 416 203 6108 or email Patti Shaw patti@terroni.ca
