New Zealand Wine Fair Trade Show, Toronto, May 15, 2008
The Time and Date: Thursday, May 15, 2008
The Event: New Zealand Wine Fair Trade Show
The Venue: Design Exchange - DX
The Target Audience: sommeliers, restaurants, LCBO product consultants, media.
The Availability/Catalogue: as usual, a terrific catalogue: spiral bound, fits in the hands okay, logos, background, contact details, agents, wines and vintage dates, prices where known, and terms of availability (Vintages, Vintages Pending, General, Consignment, Private order). The catalogue also had varietal guides to index what wineries were pouring which varietals.
The Quote: "Hey, the overhead lights work this year! Next year, maybe the clocks?"
The Wines: I did not taste every wine. There were just under 50 wineries.
**** Four Stars (91+ in Quality/Price Rating terms):
