Austrian Wine Fair – Toronto – April 14
We are happy to announce the exclusive Austrian Wine Fair on April 14, 2016 at St. James Cathedral Centre/Snell Hall and Library. Don’t miss this opportunity to taste among 165 Austrian wines!
“Austria has a terrific culture of wine, producing and drinking. Beyond the world’s best Grüner Veltliner, you’ll also find astonishing Riesling, as well as more exotic white grapes with singular flavours. But it’s the Austrian reds – Blaufränkisch, St. Laurent & co. – that may shock you most, in tune with the zeitgeist of the modern drinker. I look forward to reconnecting with the folks who make them.” – John Szabo, MS, WineAlign
