Profile Wine Group – 2017 portfolio tasting

Profile Wine Group
Profile Wine Group

The Profile Wine Group is one of the largest wine agencies in Ontario representing several establishments from Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Chile, Uruguay, the U S A, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina and Ontario.

Profile’s portfolio tasting is organized every second year, due to its huge size and diversity.

This tasting included 263 wines, beers, and spirits.

Profile Wine Group markets its products on L C B O’s general list, Vintages, Classics Catalogue, by consignments and private order methods.

Consignment products are delivered within two to three days in GTA, and three to four days elsewhere in the province, while private orders take anywhere from four to eight weeks pending on source.

I tasted approximately 90 wines, beers, and spirit.

This event featured Paganelli prosciutto, sausages, and other preserved meats that are highly recommended.

Paganelli also operates an Italian restaurant in Toronto.
