It was set in the The Darling Mansion, a place that was more than just a ‘mansion’. It was my first time being there and I had never heard about it before, so I was taken aback by the seductive yet moody vibe it had. Not to mention that there was also a Truth or Dare game present for the event’s attendees – which was very interesting to say the least! Furthermore, The Kit Canada (for the gents who don’t know, Canada’s leading beauty and style magazine), was present to document the evening. Their September issue will outline the event and have various photos, including ones of yours truly (my outfit was kinda cool, I promise!)
There was a lot that I didn’t expect, but it was quite the experience!
Beyond the fascinating atmosphere, I had the opportunity to be educated on the wines made by Apothic. I wouldn’t say I’m much of a wine connoisseur, but it was really an adventure discovering how Apothic wines differentiate from average wines. I guess there’s a reason why they’re the #1 best-selling wine in Canada! If that doesn’t say much to you, give them a try and find out for yourself.
If you’re too busy to read why the wines are here are quick summaries of the white and the red’s distinguishing flavors.
- Riesling: Responsible for the wine’s fruit-forward taste, Riesling brings attention to the refreshing flavours of peach and apricot.
- Chardonnay: Known to be one of the richest, and most fullbodied varietals, Chardonnay provides a crisp taste that accentuates fruit and vanilla notes.
- Pinot Grigio: With its delicately fragrant and mildly floral taste, Pinot Grigio contributes to the refreshing flavour with balanced blend of floral and citrus flavours.
- Zinfandel: A rich blend of Zinfandel gives APOTHIC RED a bold taste that is accented by heady, ripe raspberry fruit.
- Merlot: The inky, purple colour of this wine sends taste buds on an intense, velvety, smooth ride.
- Syrah: Known for its full-body characteristics, Syrah includes flavours like berries, peppers and tobacco for a one of-a-kind oaky taste.
- Cabernet Sauvignon: Blackcurrant notes paired with black cherry bring out the tobacco, vanilla, and violet blend of the wine.
