    County in the Capital was the first time we attended one of your events and we were very impressed by the diversity of wines, wineries and foods that you showcased. We especially loved the rare wines & icewines that were a great indulgence! Congratulations on hosting a great evening.

    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!

    Debbie..thanks again for orchestrating such a lovely evening.  We’ve had great feedback from everyone on your presentation, the wines and the restaurant.  It was the perfect location for our company’s holiday gathering.  Of course, none of it would have happened without all your hard work and skill.  Your speaking style was perfect for our event; lively, entertaining, and of course, informative!

    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!
