Building on the success of the 2010 Seriously Cool Chardonnay Tasting in London, Wine Country Ontario, in partnership with Foreign Affair and International Trade Canada and the Canadian High Commission in London, England is organizing a media and trade tasting in London in May, 2013.
Over 100 of the best Canadian wines will be showcased in London.
This is a chance for those in the UK to really discover Canadian wines.A� With break outs including an export seminar for wineries in The High Commissioner�s Salon and a sommelier masterclass on Canadian bubbles featuring 20 sparkling wines from 16 producers.
