The Quote/Background: the media had an opportunity to taste some exclusive wines at the LCBO Summerhill location (just around the corner). This was followed by a luncheon with the South African Consul General Ms. Tselane Mokuena, who is scheduled to leave Toronto after four years, to return home. She spoke on present day winery conditions and some aspects of the political scene.
The Wines: I did not taste all the wines. The exclusive wine tasting rankings from the morning are folded into the notes below.
