There are only a few wine bars in Toronto that could be considered a veritable institution. Archive is one of them, having remained excellent and unchanging in its charms for more than 12 years. On any given evening, you’ll find the city’s top sommeliers trickling into the warm brick-and-wood space to scope out what owners Joshua and Joel Corea are pouring. The wine list is part French history book, part Gamay fan club manifesto, and is packed with rarities.
