The Date and Time: Tuesday May 9, 2017  Noon - 5PM

The Event: Bourgogne Wine Tour – Toronto 2017

The Venue: Arta Gallery, Distillery District

The Target Audience: wine trade

The Availability/Catalogue: about a third of the producers were looking for agents. Each producer had about 6 or so wines, so there were about 100 wines in the show, mostly modestly priced.

The Quote/Background: it was very crowded and noisy with lots of hustle and bustle.

The Wines: There were 11 wineries with agents, 7 without. I did not try every wine.

The Food: basic nibbles of nuts and dried fruit, breads, water.

The Downside: some of the wines disappeared rather quickly. I came to the show late, just after 2PM. But still I missed Domaine Cyrot-Buthiau, some of Domaine de Mauperthuis, and some of Domaine Tortochot.

The Upside: a chance to profile new affordable wines from burgundy.

The Contact Person:

The Event's Marketing Effectiveness and Execution (numerical grade): 88.
