Wine Lists in Canada

You would expect a restaurant called The Wine Bar to have a fabulous wine list – and you would be right.We have one of the finest wine lists in Canada, with more than 200 selections handpicked by our Sommelier.


Here are just a few: 2008 Kacaba Single Vineyard, Syrah VQA Niagara, 2005 Sadia Family “Dits Del Terra”, or Grenache Spain Priorato.

Wonderful Dishes

It’s easy to see how our Executive Chef Bryan Burke came by his love of cooking – and more particularly, his love of cooking with the finest local and naturally-raised food, produced by Ontario’s farmers and artisans.

“There’s nothing I enjoy more than watching people enjoy what I have cooked,” say Bryan. It’s even better if I get to do some teaching along the way and that is exactly what happens at The Wine Bar.

Uniquely & Proudly Ontario

He takes a “clean and simple” approach to cooking that involves the “layering” of flavors. “Layering is important,” says Bryan, “because it’s important to ensure the flavors don’t blend together. That way you end up with a dish that has many different tastes and textures.”

Check Bryan’s resume and you will find that he has travelled far and wide to hone his cooking skills. He began his career by cooking in hotels and restaurants near his hometown in Halliburton, Ontario .
