    The County in the Capital event was fabulous! We had such a good time, so many of the wines were good, and it was a beautiful and unique venue. It was pretty perfect to be able to try such a number of County wines conveniently brought together here in Ottawa. Everything was just so well organized and fun, it was such a great night. Keep us on your invite list, we will be there!

    Thanks so much for providing such a wonderful Scotch Tasting event on Friday evening for the Canadian Association of Radiologists. Everyone had a great time and you selection of scotch (or should I say whiskey) was a huge hit. The extra traffic in the exhibit area was greatly appreciated by all of the sponsors… and I know the President and the CEO really enjoy the event. You certainly provided the attendees at the conference something a little out of the norm!

    The information presented for each wine was very interesting.  After sampling the wine on our own, it was a great experience to smell and taste what you explained to us in advance.  This certainly put those of us who are new to wine tasting at ease.

    Having a Sommelier taste, select and provide their knowledge of the wine along with how to match the menu is invaluable to me. Savvy Selections wines and the accompanying Savvy e-Zine, adds a whole new dimension to entertaining.

    Thank you for hosting my friend Sonia’s 40th surprised birthday.  She was so surprised and impressed to have her very own Sommelier at her party.  The evening went off as planned and our friends thought it was a unique idea for an event as it got people mingling while learning something new about wine.
