Inside Barberian’s subterranean wine vault, the best-stocked cellar in Canada
One of the city’s oldest white-tablecloth restaurants also houses one of Canada’s largest wine collections underneath what used to be its parking lot. Barberian’s wine list now sits at 4,000 selections, with nearly 40,000 bottles in inventory. (If you ordered a single bottle of every item on the list, it would cost a whopping $3-million.) Owner Arron Barberian gave us a tour of his sizeable, subterranean vault below 11 Elm Street.
