796 Wine Reviews, 113 Wines, 16 Wine Writers and Sommeliers, 1 Terrific Tasting

tasting 2

Canada’s top wine writers and sommeliers gathered in our national’s capital yesterday to taste through an impressive line-up of wines.

Twitter, Facebook and Instagram were on fire as they posted their reviews live and shared on social media.

You can get the complete list of wines here, along with their reviews and the closest liquor stores that have these wines in stock now.

This list is also accessible on the wine mobile apps.

Stay tuned: we’re already planning our next big tasting!

Jacky Blisson above has just returned from Napa Valley where she wrote her final papers for the Masters of Wine exam. She gets the results in September – fingers crossed!

Our team tasted through 27 Greek wines, both reds and whites. It was a terrific cross-section that pleasantly surprised all of us with the diversity and quality of the wines.
