Best of Ontario Wine 

Thursday, June 3rd at the newly Renovated Miller Tavern, 3885 Yonge Street, Toronto

Trade and Media Event
2:00–4:30 pm
The Wine Council of Ontario presents the first annual "Best of Ontario Wine," a Tasting for Media and Trade Professionals. Experience more than 120 of Ontario's best VQA wines from over 35 Ontario wineries including back vintages and award-winners presented by winemakers and principals.

A lot has changed in Ontario's wine country since the first commercial winery began operation on Pelee Island in 1866. Today Ontario boasts three Viticultural Areas: the Niagara Peninsula, Pelee Island, and Lake Erie North Shore. These areas, which encompass over 15,000 acres (6000 hectares) of vines, produce 90 percent of the grapes used in Canadian wine production. Prince Edward County is an emerging wine region in Ontario, currently with 400 acres of wine grapes in production. Ontario produces 44 million litres of wine annually and for the past two years has been achieving record sales.

Ontario is a cool-climate wine region that offers a diverse range of premium VQA wines. The Wine Council of Ontario invites you to experience the very best Ontario VQA wines from back vintages to award winners and meet the characters that create the wines.

*Winemakers and Principals are available for one-on-one interviews.

Consumer Wine Tasting Event
6:30 to 9:30 pm
Celebrate with hundreds of Toronto wine lovers, experience first-hand the best wines that Ontario has to offer and meet the award-winning winery principals. Ticket prices are $60 before May 15th ($55 for Ontario Wine Society members) and $65 thereafter.

To purchase tickets for the Consumer Event, or to RSVP for the Trade and Media Event, please call 416-410-4630, or email your requests to sandy@forefrontcom.com.

This year's awards are presented in part by the Toronto Star (www.thestar.com) and Wine Connection, who both actively support the Ontario wine industry. Visit www.wineconnection.ca to order your favourite Ontario wine and have it delivered straight to your doorstep.
