2011 Riesling Experience
The Riesling Experience, first held at Brock University, Ontario Canada in 2008, was so successful that the organizers are back again for 2011 with an expanded two-day program. World-renowned French producer Pierre Trimbach will open the event with a tutored tasting of his top Rieslings and will discuss his experiences with Riesling in Alsace. It will take place in the centre of Canada's Riesling wine country, St. Catharines, Ontario, and will be hosted at Brock University, the home of its well-known wine research institute, the Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI).
The purpose of the gathering is to bring together producers, trade, media and wine enthusiasts from Canada, the US and around the world to share and learn more about the diversity, beauty and versatility of Riesling.
