The Friday Fanatics Festival celebrates the beginnings of Willow Park Wines & Spirits, and our growth into Canada’s largest privately owned wine, beer, and spirit purveyor!
When we first started our festival style tastings in the late 1990’s, we called them Friday Fanatics Festivals. At the time, it seemed like you had to be a bit of a wine fanatic to want to spend your Friday nights wandering around the room sipping wine after wine! It turns out, we created a lot of wine fanatics over the years, and our festivals are some of the most popular events we host!
The night starts with the exclusive VIP Riedel Hour, featuring a throwback to the 1990s with 25 wines from the first decades of Willow Park Wines & Spirits! All of the wines in the room will be highly rated, critically acclaimed bottles from the last decade of the 20th century, such as 1990 Bordeaux, 1991 and 1994 Napa Valley, and some pretty famous 1995 and 1996 First Growth wines. We will also look to the left bank for spectacular 1998s, finishing up the decade with a 1999 new world versus old world comparison! Only 50 VIP tickets will be sold.
The critics’ choice portion begins at 7pm and will feature wines that have scored 94 points or higher, including some fantastic 1994 wines! Every major wine producing country will be in the room, and the food selection will reflect this international concept with special dishes created just for this event. Only 100 tickets will be sold.
