Outstanding in their Fields


Ottawa's FAVORITE event of the year!

This 7th annual Taste & Buy event is THE perfect opportunity to discover 100+ outstanding wines & craft ciders from across Ontario & stock up for holidays.

Everything is CRAFT...and OUTSTANDING

All year, our Savvy Team has been on the lookout for small-batch wines & craft ciders for you to enjoy with your friends at holiday parties & to give as gifts too. To top it all off, we've found artisan cheeses & gourmet goodies to die for.

Sample & Stock Up!

With a tasting glass in hand, chat with the makers about this year's harvest, holiday foods to pair with their wines & craft ciders - even swap recipes! Order a mixed case of your favourites & we'll deliver directly to your door. It's a shopping experience that you will only get at our Taste & Buy events.

Make it EXTRA Special

With so many OUTSTANDING bevvies to try, for an additional $25, you can upgrade your ticket & become a V.I.T. - a Very Important Taster.

With this special upgraded pass, you'll enjoy red carpet treatment, hors d'oeuvres & advance access from 5 to 7pm with fewer crowds...then stay as long as you like for the main event.
