It's the best seven days of Christmas ever—with wine!
We'll be popping up at the Union Station Holiday Market starting on Monday morning and running all next week (Dec. 1 to 7) in the Great Hall. (That's the main hall of Union, with the massive soaring ceilings and big clock; but we're not sure exactly where we'll be yet.) Check out the Holiday Market website for all the details—we're there 7 am to 7:30 pm on Monday; then 10 am to 7:30 pm the rest of the week; 10 am to 6 pm on Satuday, then Sunday (final day) 10 to 5.
This is pretty exciting, because we'll have some of our wines on display—though we can't provide samples, sadly—and we'll also announce our new wine-of-the-month club. It's called The Goods, because we source good wine from local wineries (not the stuff you see at the LCBO), get our sommeliers to give it their nod of approval (a grueling tasting process!), and then we pack it up with love and fun stuff in a box.
The Goods is the perfect way to give wine for Christmas (or any occasion, really). We do all the work, and your loved ones (or clients) get killer wine delivered right to their home or office. You'll be able to order The Goods right on the spot, or later from the comfort of your own computer. We'll deliver your wines in time for Christmas.
This is the first year for the Holiday Market at Union Station, and we're looking forward to meeting and chatting with hoardes of people. Organizers are expecting 100,000 people to visit the market vendors over the week. Doznes of great pop-up shops will be there, including some of favourite foodie joints like The Spice Trader and Nadege. There's lots of other good stuff too (the non-edible kind).
The market will be in the Great Hall, main floor level. We'll be there all day, every day, with some of our pals and Taste Buds. Come by and say hi to sommelier Zoltan Szabo and find out why he's so "unbelievable"! We'll be live Tweeting and sending out tips on holiday wines. Follow @kwafwine for all the fun.
