    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!

Savvy Cool Curds

    Savvy Cool Curds is hands-down a great idea. There is no one better suited than Vanessa Simmons to select the best in Canadian cheese to discover each month. I’m sure the cheese-of-the-month will succeed because consumers want local…they want Canadian!
