Tasting LCBO General List Australian Wines
At the Faculty Club
Tuesday March 12, 2019


Nineteen crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction British rogues guilty of a least one of the 19 crimes were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. This punishment by "transportation" began in 1783 and many of the lawless died at sea. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaited. As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick. One of the wines we will taste is “19 Crimes Shiraz Durif” from the LCBO shelves. This wine celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built.

This will be a special evening featuring “19 Crimes” and seven other wines selected at the LCBO. From time to time members ask if wines we pour are available in the LCBO, usually we say no, as they were purchased over 10 years ago. So tonight you taste, enjoy, then go and buy your favourites at your local LCBO. The names of the other wines will be revealed as we go through the tasting. The evening will start at 6:30 with a reception wine then the blind tasting starts at 7:00 p.m. Food will be served when we sit and again midway in the eight wine line-up.

The Faculty Club is at 41 Willcocks Street, Toronto, 416-978-6325, one block south of Harbord, and east of Spadina Avenue. Metered parking on the surrounding streets, and TTC stops at Willcocks on Spadina. We will be upstairs for both the reception wine and the tasting.
