Wines of France

6:30 75

Did you know France is the world's leading wine producing country, and makes roughly half of all the world's premium wines? No wonder it's been written that "wine is the blood of France."

Join us for lively and informative tasting through six leading wine regions of France, where sommelier Erin Henderson will share insights on the grapes, the places and some fascinating history as to why France is the reiging king of wine. 

Class runs 6:30-8:30pm at Vantage Venues, 150 King St. W. 

  • Doors open at 6 p.m. for welcome wine & cheese
  • Class runs from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Please join us after the class for a light buffet of delicious snacks, creatively made by Vantage Venues award-winning chef team

*Sorry, we can not offer refunds on classes or exchanges for other dates or events. 



  1. Should I eat dinner before the wine tasting?

Well, if you ask us, we're always hungry so that would an enthusiastic yes. We do set out a cheeseboard before the tasting for you to enjoy and share with fellow class mates over a glass of welcome wine. After the tasting ends, somewhere between 8-8:30, we do offer a selection of light bites, but that's a long time to go with out eating – at least for us. 

  1. Is there parking nearby?

There is no parking onsite, but plenty of Green P's around the building. Vantage Venues is at 150 King St. W., right above the St Andrew's subway station, on the King streetcar line, and a block north of Union Station. 

Please do not drink and drive. 

  1. Are there refills on wine?

We like how you think, but sadly, no. We strive to keep these wine tastings as economical as possible (and take a look around, we've done a pretty good job, if we do say so ourselves), so we offer a proper tasting amount of 2 oz per person, per wine, plus a glass of welcome wine to start the evening. 

  1. Can I bring a friend and pay at the door?

Unfortunately not. We don't have an onsite payment system and the nature of the class is we need to know ahead of time to ensure we have enough wine and food for everyone. 

  1. What food is served? 

Super delicious food! The creative chefs' team at Vantage Venues changes it up every class to carefully pair to our themes, however, there is always vegan and gluten free options available. Closer to the class date we will publish the menu. 

  1. I'm just a beginner. Are the classes appropriate for me?

YES! everyone is welcome at our classes. We've had everyone from newbies to wine enthusiasts who have travelled the world's wine regions join our tastings and so far, our survey results say everyone has loved the workshops and learned something new. (#humblebrag).
