Cavinona Portfolio Tasting – Toronto 2017

Cavinona Portfolio Tasting
Cavinona Portfolio Tasting

Cavinona is a Toronto based consignment and private order wine

agency specializing in artisanal Italian  wineries from practically all provinces, except Val d’Aosta in the north.  This small province produces some outstanding wines, but in small quantities, and whatever is available, tourists and locals consume.

Cavinona selects small reducers that strive to produce terroir-specific wines in small and family-owned establishments.

Consignment wines can be picked up free of charge at Terroni 720 Queen Street W, or delivered for a fee. For clients living outside of Toronto shipments can be made to the nearest L C B O stores to be picked up by the client at no cost.

For orders call 416 203 6108 or logon to www.cavinona.com

Every year Cavinona organizes a portfolio tasting at the Terroni Restaurant in Toronto. You can subscribe to their newsletter and receive all the information required.
