Step into a world of palate-pleasing discovery and delight
The 6th Montréal Montreal Wine and Spirits Show will be held from

grand public event, the largest of its kind in Canada, is presented by
the Association québécoise des agences de vins, bières
et spiritueux (AQAVBS) in collaboration with major partner, Société
des alcools du Québec (SAQ).
An exceptional vintage
In an exhibition hall measuring close to 10,000 m² in area, the 2004
edition of the Montréal Wine and Spirits Show will welcome an imposing
delegation of 250 producers, vintners and distillers of international
renown from 30 producing nations worldwide.
For the first time, a record 1200 of the some 2500 products on offer
will be private imports available exclusively at the Show. Visitors will
relish the unique opportunity to discover, sample and purchase the products
they fancy. They will also delight in making privileged contact with producers,
attending free conferences and product samplings, taking part in any number
of activities designed to enhance their knowledge of the fascinating world
of wine and spirits, and familiarizing themselves with a host of essential
tasting and storage accessories.
One of the leading events of its kind... on this side of the Atlantic
A rendez-vous par excellence for anyone with a penchant for discovery,
the Montréal Wine and Spirits Show has become the most highly anticipated
event of connoisseurs and recent initiates alike. The surging popularity
of this event of international renown owes not only to its remarkable
