This week we attended the Wolf Blass 2012 Luxury Collection Release wine dinner at the stunning Malaparte Restaurant located at the TIFF LightBox. We were anticipating meeting Wolf Blass himself, the man behind the iconic brand and famous bow tie! “Wolfie” as he is called did not disappoint and neither did the four stunning wines we were privileged to enjoy.
Wolf Blass is the official sponsor of TIFF, for the second year running, and Wolf Blass is right at home on the red carpet and award ceremonies having won more awards than any other brand in the world! Wolfie, or the “Cool Wolf” as we nicknamed him last night, he really is a “dude” who appreciates living life to the fullest, embracing sports, he still skis, the arts, culture and of course amazing food and wines was totally engaging as he orated standing on the chair about the history, the present and the future plans of the company he founded over 46 years ago in 1961.
The Luxury Collection features four classic wines from three stellar vintages.
