Intimate Feel

My first goal is to provide an intimate event where we can share our love for food and wine together, and where I can share my knowledge in a way that opens your palettes.

Premium Wines

As a Level 3 Sommelier (WSET 3), my desire is to share the premium wines available in the Niagara region. We are fortunate to have such an extensive grape so near to us and it is my goal to share it with you.

Easy Booking

Booking is made simple through my website, where any issues are resolved by myself and myself alone. I can assure you a seamless booking process so you can focus on our event!

A Few Words

ABOUT US

New World Wine Tours provides boutique wine experiences from Toronto to Niagara and Prince Edward County. We also specialize in food and sake tourism in Toronto. Everything we do on a day-to-day basis is small scale and an intimate approach to tourism informed by local expertise. We are, however, happy to host groups of international visitors, businessmen and private events.

A Passion Project

Founder Mackenzie Putici traveled the world tasting wines from Europe, Asia, North and South America. He now wishes to bring the love of wine back home to Ontario. Mackenzie believes the wines of Ontario are over-looked and under-appreciated. New World Wine Tours was founded to share the sights and culinary delights of our corner of the world to locals and visitors of Ontario alike.
