Taste Ontario trade show (Wine Country Ontario) Oct 10/13 report
The Date and Time: Thursday, October 10, 2013
The Event: Taste Ontario, from Wine Country Ontario and Vintages
The Venue: ROM
The Target Audience: wine trade
The Availability/Catalogue: all wines are available, either through the LCBO or through the winery.
The Quote/Background: This is the annual major promotion for Ontario wines, especially to the trade. The media were fortunate enough to have about 3 hours off on their own to taste most of the wines in the show.
The Wines: I did not taste every wine, preferring to try only most of the red and white still table wines. Most of the wines were from Niagara, so for clarity, I added PEC or LENS after other wines. Prices listed are retail consumer unless otherwise specified.
