Cuvée Weekend

Thank you to everyone for attending the Cuvée Grand Tasting as well as the record crowds taking in the Cuvée en Route passport program.

Thank you to our Sponsors – without YOU there would be no Cuvée. We encourage guests to the Cuvee website to check out these valued supporters and visit the weblinks provided.

Why it Matters? Proceeds support undergraduate and graduate student scholarships as well as research programs that support the grape and wine industry. Go to our IMPACT page to learn more and meet some of our Legacy Fund student recipients.

As soon as we have a date for Cuvée 2020 YOU will be the first to know. Until then please take a look at our video and photo galleries, and follow us on Instagram.


About the event:

The Cuvée weekend wine experience kicks off en Route on Friday and Saturday leading to the marquis event – the Grand Tasting on Saturday evening at the Scotiabank Convention Centre.  Guests of the Grand Tasting will have the opportunity to taste wines selected by the winemakers themselves as their favourite. What wine will each winemaker choose?  Their selections will be revealed at the tasting. The Après Cuvée Party will keep the celebration going with dancing and will feature sparkling wine, Icewine as well as local craft beer and cider stations. To complement the VQA wine selection, guests will also have the opportunity to sample signature dishes created at live cooking stations by local and guest chefs. Grand Tasting 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Après Cuvée party 9:30 p.m. to midnight.

Cuvée En Route Passport: Tour and taste your way along Niagara’s wine route all weekend. Guests can travel the wine route Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as the wineries roll out the red carpet to feature special tasting flights embodying the best of Ontario wines during Cuvée en Route.  Guests have the exclusive opportunity to shop featured Cuvée wines direct from the wineries.
