Some Info on the Winemaker:
Alejandra De Miguel, Chief Winemaker, Principal, Vintage One Wines
Alejandra has developed a profile in Toronto as an internationally recognized winemaker, restaurateur and in the know ‘foodie’.
Born and raised in Mendoza, Argentina, to a family of world-class winemakers, she grew up around wine and vineyards. Her family moved to Toronto when she was nine years old, and as soon as she could, she was travelling to apprentice with winemakers around the world.
Her first apprenticeship was at a winery in Spain when she was 17, and she continued her training at vineyards and wineries in Chile, Italy, Argentina and other countries.
Alejandra completed her post-secondary studies at McGill University in Montreal, completing part of her studies at the University of Barcelona, and Dante Alighieri in Florence. After she graduated, Alejandra went on to work at the family winery alongside her parents, where she refined her winemaking techniques and further discovered her passion for wine. Managing the family business, she became involved in the production of wine, as well as the importing of grapes.
In 2005 Alejandra founded Olivia’s at Fifty-three, a restaurant and micro-winery in Toronto’s hip Little Italy district that was acclaimed for its menu and décor as well as its wine list.
Her passion for wine took over in 2007, when she launched Vintage One Wines, Canada’s first city winery.
V1 imports grapes from world-renowned grape-growing regions, and ages its custom wines in American, French, and Hungarian oak barrels. Its wines are made at its 10,000 sq-ft facility below the street and bustling traffic of Toronto’s West End.
Since opening Vintage One Alejandra has partnered with Celebrity Chefs and internationally recognized organizations as a guest speaker for events.
She is currently in development of a wine and travel show called Living Wine.
Alejandra speaks fluent English, Spanish, and Italian and currently lives in Toronto, but her home will always be the rolling hills of wine country, Argentina.
