Celebrating its 27th anniversary, the Cuvée Grand Tasting was a hot ticket based on its reputation as an influential salute to excellence in Ontario winemaking and was a destination for foodies seeking a unique culinary experience. And the sold-out 2015 edition held Feb. 27 at Fallsview Casino Resort lived up to this reputation.
Organized by Brock University’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI), the Cuvée Grand Tasting is one of the largest celebrations of Ontario VQA wine, with proceeds helping fund student scholarships and research needs that are identified by the Ontario grape and wine industry.
The 2015 Grand Tasting featured 52 Ontario VQA winemakers who each poured their favourite wine as well as 13 culinary partners serving up signature dishes at live cooking stations to 700 guests. Following the tasting, a live band kicked off the Après Cuvée after party which featured Icewine and sparkling wine bars and local craft beer stations.
This event would not have been possible without the support of our host Fallsview Casino Resort, our sponsors, winery and culinary partners and volunteers.
