Downtown Winery, Toronto, ON

David Macedo opened Macedo Wine Grape Juice Ltd on Ossington Avenue, just north of Queen Street W, in 1985, selling grapes seasonally for wine-making and year-round for grape juice.  In 2019, the family renovated and opened Downtown Winery, offering international and domestic wine for purchase, wine tastings by appointments, wine by the glass with food pairings and event space rental opportunities.

Gord and I discovered them in the spring and have stopped in to have a couple glasses of wine and buy wine to take home.  The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and we've had a good time there.  When Covid-19 hit, they continued to sell wine, accessories, etc. to take home.

A couple weeks ago, with stage 2 here in Toronto, they opened a patio.

They recently started selling cans of wine.  I follow them on Instagram and see they had a sale ... buy six cans of wine and get one free.  How could I resist?  They are in my 'hood so I walked over.  They have a white wine with a bit of bubbly, red wine and rosé wine available in cans so I got some of each.

Thanks to Aimee, Rafaela and Diego!

It was such a nice day that I stayed and had a glass of Riesling on their patio.
