    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!

    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.

    Dave & I had a great time last night. It’s always nice to enjoy new wines. Although I have completed reading Natalie’s book, Red, White and Drunk All Over, which I enjoyed tremendously, it was an added bonus to taste wines she refers to in her book.

    That was the best off-site wine tasting I have attended – you did a great job organizing and the details – such as the local artisanal fromageries and the cucumber water made it as special as the venue – congratulations! Oh yeah, the wine was good too! Please keep us posted on other Savvy Company events.
