First Ever Kosher Wine Festival in Canada a Massive Success
The sold-out "JUMP Wine Festval" at Toronto's Arta Gallery on Thursday, July 5, 2012.
If the kosher wine wasn’t fabulous enough, sumptuous “nibbles” such as caprese salad skewers and mini-crab cakes were provided by Hogtown’s newest (and much lauded Kosher caterer) The Pantry. Likewise, Toronto-based Uber provided all attendees with complimentary black car service to and from the soirée.
Perhaps one anonymous guest surmised the sold-out eve perfectly, “The JUMP Wine Festival is the best event I have ever been to in Toronto.”
Keep in mind, that comment was before one very lucky attendee won a round trip ticket to Israel, many thanks to El Al Airlines.
Due to its tremendous success, the festival will recur next year, and consequently, will become one of JUMP’s signature programs. If you were unable to attend the event this year, be sure to purchase tickets sooner than later for summer 2013, as suffice to say, they will sell fast.
