    We can’t thank you all enough for the effort that went into the All-Canadian Wine Taste & Buy Event. The venue was absolutely stunning, wonderful to see so many people out supporting this event.  The Experimental Farm is a fantastic place to hold such an event. We look forward to your next event and once again a huge THANK YOU to all of the Savvy team members who were involved in organizing this successful evening.

    Dave & I had a great time last night. It’s always nice to enjoy new wines. Although I have completed reading Natalie’s book, Red, White and Drunk All Over, which I enjoyed tremendously, it was an added bonus to taste wines she refers to in her book.

    Having a Sommelier taste, select and provide their knowledge of the wine along with how to match the menu is invaluable to me. Savvy Selections wines and the accompanying Savvy e-Zine, adds a whole new dimension to entertaining.

    Thank you for hosting my friend Sonia’s 40th surprised birthday.  She was so surprised and impressed to have her very own Sommelier at her party.  The evening went off as planned and our friends thought it was a unique idea for an event as it got people mingling while learning something new about wine.
