Grand Tasting 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Après Cuvée party 9:30 p.m. to midnight
The Cuvée weekend wine experience kicks off Friday evening with the Grand Tasting at the Scotiabank Convention Centre. Guests will have the opportunity to taste wines that were selected by each winemaker as their favorite. What wine will each winemaker choose? Their selections will be revealed at the tasting.
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.
The Après Cuvée Party will keep the celebration going with dancing and will feature sparkling wine, Icewine as well as local craft beer stations.
Included with your ticket for the Grand Tasting was your opportunity to complete the Cuvée wine weekend experience with a Cuvée en Route passport.
New host, new opportunities
The Grand Tasting will move to a new host venue starting in 2016. The Scotiabank Convention Centre is located in the heart of Niagara Falls’ casino and tourism district.
Scotiabank Convention Centre’s president and general manager Noel Buckley said that they are proud to partner with Brock University on such a prominent Niagara-based event.
“Ontario wines, particularly those from Niagara, are some of the finest in Canada and the world and the Cuvée Grand Tasting is the perfect opportunity to celebrate this fact,” said Buckley.
