The 12th annual Niagara New Vintage Festival
June 917, 2007
We are about to draw the cork on Niagara's Premier Spring Wine Event the Niagara New Vintage Festival which attracts 30 of the Region's award-winning wineries and provides a veritable smorgasbord of activities, entertainment, cooking demonstrations and, of course, the opportunity to be among the first to sample Niagara's newest vintages.
The festivities kick off with the Dairy Farmers of Canada Cheese & Wine Seminar Series, June 9 and 10, hosted by two of the area's most celebrated restaurants, Wellington Court in St. Catharines and Treadwell in Port Dalhousie. Your next Wine and Cheese party will never be the same, having expanded your appreciation of all things fermented under the tutelage of cheese expert Kathy Guidi and two of Niagara's top sommeliers.
Another tasty new feature for this year is the TD Bank Financial Group New Vintage Grille on Saturday, June 16 at the Niagara Culinary Institute, from 6 pm to 9 pm. Join top celebrity hosts Anna Olson (Food Network's Sugar) and Rob Rainford (Licence to Grill) as they dazzle you with their culinary expertise and demonstrate how to get the most flavour out of the summer season; there will even be an opportunity to bid on the brand new Weber grill that Rainford will use for his demonstration. Only $90 per person, these tickets are going fast.
The best value for this nine-day event can be found in the Chrysler New Vintage Discovery Pass, sponsored by our newest partner and year-round Signature Sponsor, Chrysler Canada. The Discovery Pass is your passport to savings, with tickets to your choice of five wine experiences, five exclusive culinary offerings and a host of special packages and discounts provided by our many hotel and restaurant partners. With participation by more than 30 partners and a value of over $200, it's easy to see why at $30 the Chrysler Discovery Pass will be the hit of the Festival.
