Humans' taste for food, sampling the available produce, goes back to the dawn of time. A combination of survival and curiosity made way for culturally, and geographically unique ways to increase the enjoyment of consuming food and culture shifted from mere survival into ecstasy.
The addition of wine into our diets has had a similarly long and nuanced journey to its current state; advancing from ceremonial uses in Ancient Armenia in 4100BC to miraculous wedding feasts and medical applications to an industry with a projected worldwide value of 429 billion USD by 2023.
If you are curious about wine, already love wine, or don't love it but want to - connect with Angela to create a pairing or personal flight to enjoy at home. She will listen to what you enjoy and help select wines best suited to your needs and wants. The combination of a charcuterie box and a great bottle of wine are the perfect ingredients for a special night in - Special Occasion not required. But there are some delicious possibilities like the Chocolate Sampler Board to make this Valentine's Day one for the books.
Angela made selecting the Astrale Red to pair with a charcuterie box such an easy choice. By selecting wine through From the Vines, it made me slow down and take in the experience it provided and truly relax over a glass of wine - and a moment to relax is precious these days.
A current wine list and charcuterie menu are available at fromthevines.ca where you can also stay apprised of temporary hours. Follow From the Vines on social media and grow your appreciation for wine as Angela shares her heart for connecting people over a great glass.
From the Vines is located at 168 Curtis St.
