If you’re a fan of the fruity and light-bodied wine that is Gamay, you’ll be happy to here there’s a monthlong celebration of the varietal.

Last year, Maiden Lane Wine & Spirits hosted a Three Weeks of Gamay promotion last year, and they’re upping the ante this year by celebrating GaMAY!


Starting today, May 2 through to May 31, the well loved downtown cocktail bar is featuring wine made from one of their favourite grapes – Gamay. The red grape of Beaujolais, Gamay is celebrated for its versatility, its drinkability and its pure deliciousness. It’s a perfect red to transition into warmer weather and patio season.

Everyone who participates in GaMAY will get a points card. For every 5 points earned, you’ll be entered into a draw to win a $100 gift certificate and one of Maiden Lane’s Shake On It tote bags. To kick off the event, and for every Tuesday until the end of the month, you’ll also be able to earn double the points!

Maiden Lane Wine & Spirits will be doing 3oz and 5oz pours, wine flights, and bottles, providing lots of opportunities to try and compare. Flights are available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday only.

They currently have 10 different Gamay options in rotation, and will be adding more over the next few weeks.
