Canada Wine Battle: Niagara Vs Okanagan

  • June 29, 2022
  • 7 PM
  • KWM IN STORE
  • $60.00
*PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN IN-PERSON TASTING BEING HELD AT KENSINGTON WINE MARKET. WE WILL NOT BE POURING SAMPLE BOTTLES FOR THOSE THAT CAN NOT ATTEND.*

Help decide whether it is the wine of BC or Ontario that will reign supreme! We all know neither province has a hockey team that will ever win the Stanley Cup again - so we must give them something to brag about, right? They at least make good wine, so Ethan has chosen four different varietal-driven wines from each region, and you will taste them head-to-head. Eight bottles will be tasted, but only one region can leave as the champion! Will it be Niagara or Okanagan that wears the crown?

Cheese and Charcuterie accompaniment for this tasting is provided by our fantastic neighbours at Peasant Cheese.

Overlooked, underappreciated, and in some cases, flat-out unknown distilleries will be the focus of this tasting featuring some of the most neglected distilleries in the Scotch Whisky world. We had to drag some of these poor unloved drams out from the orphanages, the cupboards under the stairs, and other assorted nooks and crannies, in order to bring you a line-up that is bound to appeal to the most discerning of whisky geeks. 7 PM, Tuesday, June 20
