Sante Down Under - Australian wine tasting, May 9, 2008
The Time and Date: Friday, May 9, 2008
The Event: Sante Down Under a tasting of Australian wines.
The Venue: Hart House
The Target Audience: consumers.
The Availability/Catalogue: the normal Sante catalogue was presented, with all the relevant data about the wines and the grapes. It only lacked for levels of availability and prices. Most of the wines being shown were somewhere in the LCBO distribution system.
The Quote: "This is a really fun time. I'm learning a lot about wines" (from Celeste)
The Wines: 18 wineries poured just under 100 wines. I did not try them all. Prices were problematic. See my notes above for DogRidge.
