Everyone deserves the opportunity to learn, discover and have fun. Our Savvy Events afford exactly those kinds of creative social experiences, drawing on the expertise and imagination of our team of Savvy Sommeliers.

Relaxed and welcoming, Savvy Events aren’t about theory or textbooks. They’re about getting to know the people who produce the food and drink we enjoy—to make connections and forge friendships. All you need is an open mind, an eager palate and a spirit of exploration.

We invite you to join us!

 

 

ANNOUNCING….
Savvy Virtual Tasting Events!

Beginning this month, we will be hosting several Savvy Virtual Wine Tastings each month featuring winemakers from across Canada.  To enhance the experience, you can order the wines that will be featured during the tasting through our Savvy Care Packages.

Once you have ordered the Savvy Care Package of the featured winemaker, we will send you the link to join us on Zoom on the designated date. 

Savvy Virtual Tasting Schedule:

Tues Sept 15 – Rosehall Run Vineyards – featuring Dan Sullivan co-owner & winemaking pioneer in the Prince Edward County

Wed Oct 14 – 13th Street Winery – in the early days this winery was a collab space for amateur winemakers, now it has evolved to an award winning winery with internationally renown winemaker Jean Pierre Colas – best known for his sparkling wines & gorgeous Gamay wines. 

Oct 15 – Harvest time in British Columbia @ Mt Boucherie & Rust Wine – live from the ‘crush pad’ with winemaker Jeff Hundertmark.  Get a glimpse of the chaos of harvest in the Okanagan while you enjoy a tasting of the signature wines from two BC wineries.

~ COVID update about in-person events ~

Our calendar of events for 2020 was full of fabulous events for you to enjoy.  With the uncertainty of length of the pandemic, the outlook for large scale events is uncertain as well.  For each Savvy Event, we will endeavor to reschedule to a later date rather than cancel the event. 

 The Savvy Team enjoys hosting these events for you & the featured winemakers, cidermakers, cheesemakers & gourmet artisans too.  As soon as we are given the green light again by the government & the health authorities, we will update below.  If you are a Savvy All-Events Passholder, we will grant you automatically registration to all events in 2021…and some extra perks too.

Thanks a million for your patience & support.

 

 

Current 2020 calendar…

Savvy Events are always fun nights out. You’re invited to join us to meet the neat people who make the bevvies, sample & order your favorites. We look forward to seeing you & your friends at an upcoming event in Ottawa & Kingston.

Corks & Forks – Kingston’s International Wine Festival

RESCHEDULED to 2021
