TORONTO, June 14, 2015 /CNW/ - Toronto's first outdoor wine and spirit festival is back for its 7th year; June 18th-20th, joining forces for a 2nd year with the Redpath Waterfront Festival! Help us celebrate the kick-off to summer at Sugar Beach! There are over 50 vendors participating this year, featuring fine wines, spirits, beer, cider, coolers, and great food. Plus live music, and tasting seminars all weekend long!
To find out what vendors will be there, check out: www.wineandspiritfestival.ca/vendors.html
Pop by Scottie's Strawberry Social for a berry delicious blended cocktail, then relax with that perfect pairing of puff and pour at the Whisky & Cigar Lounge, featuring Forty Creek Whisky.
Lovin' local wines? We have plenty!
Don't miss "Introducing…"; an entirely NEW space dedicated to showcasing some of the newest libations from some truly amazing brands!
Back by popular demand....The Cocktail Cage Match! With two competitions happening live, in the Wine & Spirit School. Vendors in both the "Spirit" and "Beer" categories go head to head on different days creating original cocktails with secret ingredients. Spirits compete on Thursday night at 7:45pm and Beers battle it out on Saturday at 7pm. The best part? Festival guests get to be the judge, vote on their favourites and declare the winners!
The much-anticipated, finger licking, "Hogtown Smackdown' is also back on Saturday, June 20th. It's the competition that boasts Canada's favourite meat…that's right, bacon! This year's contenders are The Saucy Pierogi, Magic Oven, Sobeys Urban Fresh and Dr. J's BBQ & Brews. Who will take the title for most scrumptious swine? Again, we turn to our trusted audience to taste and vote for their favourite dish.
Get ready to dance your flip-flops off! The Festival features live music all weekend long and provides the soundtrack for kicking up your heels in the sand.
