The Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake are returning to Ottawa to treat their ever-loyal fans to a double billed evening of a Rare Wines Tasting, followed by One Unforgettable Taste & Buy. Hosted by Savvy Company, these back-to-back events will take place Tuesday May 28th in the new Canadian Agriculture and Food Museum located in the Central Experimental Farm, 861 Prince of Wales Drive, Ottawa.
New this year, the Rare Wines Tasting will feature a selection of hard-to-find wines dating back to the early 1990s. “Winemakers are dusting off bottles from their private cellars to showcase how their finest wines have evolved. This is truly a unique experience for any Ontario wine enthusiast”, says Derek Barnett of Lailey Vineyard. Only 50 tickets will be available for this special first-of-its-kind event taking place from 5pm to 7pm, meeting winery owners and winemakers as guests enjoy the finest wines of Niagara-on-the-Lake.
The evening will continue with One Unforgettable Taste & Buy from 7pm to 9pm featuring wines from the 2012 vintage. “2012 provided us with spectacular conditions for growing grapes”, explains Lailey’s Barnett . “Ottawa will be the first to try these excellent wines.”
Returning to Ottawa for its 3rd year, One Unforgettable Taste & Buy provides the opportunity for guests to order any combination of their favorite wines. The featured wines are not available at the LCBO or Vintages. As an extra bonus, free shipping by courier will be offered for orders of 12 bottles or more. This is a perfect opportunity to stock up for summer entertaining.
