May 26/10: Tasting of the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Board of Trade
The Time and Date: Wednesday, May 26, 2010
The Event: A tasting of the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake, a group representing all the 22 wineries in that micro-region. Sherri Lockwood is this year's head of the group. It was put on by the iYellow wine club.
The Venue: Board of Trade
The Target Audience: consumers
The Availability/Catalogue: There were 22 wineries, with two wines each. Products were available for ordering that night. The catalogue had prices and vintage dates. And many winemakers were actually in attendance.
The Quote/Background: It was a good space for the 200 attendees, willing to cool off with many white wines and sparklers. Angela Aiello, the main organizer for iYellow, had arranged for a variety of seminars for those who wished to learn more.
The Wines: I did not try all the wines, leaving out those I had just recently sampled elsewhere.
