Wine Dinners

Wine Dinners with Peter Boyd - Spring/Summer 2017

Pukka offers a series of evening wine events aimed equally at beginners and experienced wine lovers. One Monday each month, Peter will lead a small group of the wine-curious on a voyage of discovery, trying to make sense of where and how wine fits with complex, wide-ranging Indian flavours. 100% Snob-Free! Peter’s thirty years of teaching and working in the restaurant industry have sadly done nothing to diminish his irreverent sense of fun.

Each wine dinner includes a four-course prix fixe meal matched with approximately eight wines.

Price for each event is $75 plus tax and service per person. Seating is limited to 16 guests.

To reserve, please contact the restaurant directly by calling 416-342-1906. We require a credit card number to secure your reservation.

'Alsace, Allemande und Alto Adige’

We’ve had such success with our wine dinner series with aromatic wines from Alsace and Germany that it only makes sense to add the gorgeous array of wine possibilities from the Sud-Tirol or Alto Adige of northern Italy, a former outpost of both Switzerland and Austria! The innate Germanic love of precision inhabits all three regions but the expanded choices for wine pairings that Alto Adige brings to the mix is downright exciting! Prepare to be wowed.

Alberto Zenato - Zenato Winery

Join us for a truly intimate dinner as we welcome winemaker Alberto Zenato from Veneto Italy. 
The Zenato family and their wines have been a benchmark in the Veneto region, which has a long cultural and historical tradition in quality Italian winemaking. Zenato possesses a strong link to the richness of its local history and culture. The family is avid in their dedication, through vigorous research and innovation, which translates in the continued development expressed in their wines. The estate is based in a territory that surrounds Lake Garda, an area with an extraordinary microclimate that allows for an optimal growing season. Besides being the protagonists of the Ripasso Renaissance, which is epitomized through their iconic Ripassa, another of Zenato’s claims to fame includes putting the white wine appellation Lugana on the map. Zenato produces wines that transcend both classic and modern styles continuously offering a mix of popular appeal, their passion of the vine and a clearly evident winemaking expertise.

More dates coming soon...

{Please note that these evenings will provide each participant with somewhere between 2/3 and 3/4 of a bottle of wine per person. Please make safe arrangements for your trip home so you can join in with abandon and bask in the evening’s conviviality.}
