Someone once said to us that a wine festival is like a liquid passport that takes you to some of the most amazing wineries. And looks like we are about to get a liquid passport to more than 100 of Cali’s best wineries. Because California Wines is bringing back its wine tasting event to Toronto this May. Fellow cork dorks, gear up for EUREKA: The California Wine Discovery!
