Two Taste Ontario! events featured large tastings of Ontario wine recently. There wa strong representation of provincial wineries pouring a wide range of styles largely from the 2013, 2014 and 2015 Ontario vintages.
You’ll find 100+ wine reviews from our team here, along with which stores have the wines in stock now.
You’ll get a sense of the strong attendance and energy in the room from the video below (click on the arrow to play it).
The 2012 Ontario vintage was a warm one, resulting in deep grape ripening and full-bodied style #wine. - Natalie MacLean Click to tweet
However, the 2013 average temperatures were back to seasonal norms, resulting in longer and more even ripening and a more balanced style of Ontario #wine. - Natalie MacLean Click to tweet
Several of our team members enjoying the event including sommeliers Jon Steeves and Craig Kuziemsky, as well as Huffington Post Wine Columnist Heather Wall.
An astounding number of Ontario wineries are making excellent #wine and I discovered several new ones during the event. - Natalie MacLean Click to tweet
