On October 26, you're invited to a Virtual Wine Tasting and Masterclass with John Torrens, General Manager and Head Sommelier, Hexagon Restaurant. Torrens will equip members with the knowledge and tools that will allow them to bring the wine pairing experience of a fine dining restaurant into their home.
As a member of the opening team back in September of 2017, John Torrens (an Oakville native) has performed many roles at Hexagon, recently voted one of Canada’s best restaurants for 2020. As the Head Sommelier, you can find John on a nightly basis pouring plenty of bubbly & suggesting that perfect beverage pairing to match your dish. The wine list at Hexagon celebrates classic French appellations while exploring local regions & unique wines from around the world in order to echo the focus of Chef Rafael’s progressive tasting menu. Always aiming to surprise, John loves promoting bottles from underserved regions that transmit terrior in a way that is familiar but forces guests out of their comfort zone. John is honored to partner with Toronto Life as their Sommelier-in-Residence for the month of October.
"Welcome TL Insiders! I am pleased to lead this virtual tasting and look forward to sharing my experiences as a Sommelier and engaging with you on a personal level." – John Torrens, Hexagon Restaurant
