Toronto Wine Enthusiasts: iYellow Wine Club

I am constantly seeking stimulating conversation with down-to-earth people in Toronto, paired with a bold glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. After strolling into the Vineyards Estate Wines Store on Queens Quay Thursday night for 'A Mid Summer's Wine Social' hosted by the iYellow Wine Club, my desires were fulfilled.

Using a plotted map, I navigated through the tasting stations showcasing six 'all-star' Niagara wines that came highly recommended by the club owners Angela Aiello and Paxton Allewell. Within minutes of my arrival, I was engaged in lively discussions with other like-minded young urban professionals who were there to share a common passion for wine tasting.

The crowning glory went to Hillebrand's Trius White 2007 VQA, sampled with a sumptuous cream cheese and caviar spread on crunchy rice crackers; a delectable creation catered by A Taste Above.

Deemed The Wine Enthusiasts, Aiello and Allewell are filling a niche in Toronto by offering a unique wine club that is free to join. The duo host monthly wine events at an affordable cost of around $30 and specialize in tours departing from downtown Toronto to reputable wineries in the Niagara region.

The secret to iYellow's success lies in Aiello and Allewell's knowledge and love of wine. Both founders possess first-hand experience working in premiere Niagara wineries. Together they bring a fresh, youthful and accessible approach to wine tasting that is uninhibited and without any pretentious undertones.
