If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram and/or Facebook, you would’ve seen that I was having soooo much fun at the Versay On Tap wine event last night. It was a packed house over at Rock Lobster over on Ossington Avenue, as we celebrated the VIP launch of Versay wine, Ontario’s first wine on tap. The evening featured 8 different types of Versay wines on tap (I tried them all, they were all wonderful!), as well as (too die for) seafood appetizers from Rock Lobster. The event was FAN-TASTIC! The wine was so good; it was easy to drink, and tasted really good.

I guess a lot of us think that wine won’t be as good if it comes in anything other than a bottle, but I was pleasantly surprised. The wine was great; I’m not expert, but I’ve had some really expensive wines and dare I say the Versay wines were better? Yes.
My favourite wines of the evening were the:
- Bieler Pere et Fils Cuvee Stellie Rose 2012, Coteaux D’aix En Provence, France
- Gazerra, Pinot Grigio 2012, Sicily
- Mamma Mia Chardonnay Grechetto 2010, Umbria, Italy
And the food… lawd the food was paired perfectly! Don’t even get me started on the jerk shrimp and lobster rolls… HEAVENLY. My favourite thing about serving wine of tap, is that it’s environmentally friendly; there is no waste, so the stainless steel kegs are all reusable!
