The i4C+ Celebration You Should Not Miss: Wineries and Wines

i4C logoAt the i4C+ Celebration on July 21-23, 2017 there will be 59 cool climate chardonnay producers; 25 wineries from Ontario and 34 from around the world.  There will be 2 wineries from BC too.  And as I mentioned in my previous article on the i4C+ Celebration, while the focus is Chardonnay there will also be Pinot Noir, Gamay, Cab Franc, Blanc de Blancs, and Rosé wines to enjoy.  Here is the list of wineries and the wines that you can sip and savour if you attend.

Being in BC, I am very excited to try more wines from Ontario, as we do not get that many wines.  Austria is intriguing.  Australia’s Margaret River produces wines which are more in Burgundy style, which I like, and I have a soft spot for French wine.  It will be interesting to compare the Chardonnay from Sonoma, Napa, and SLH.

Drink Good Wine. That is my motto and I really want to help you drink good wine. What is good wine? That can be a different thing for each people. Some people prefer red wines. Some only like Cabernet Sauvignon. MyWinePal was started by Karl Kliparchuk, WSET. I spent many years with the South World Wine Society as the President and then cellar master. I met many great wine makers. I love to travel around the world, visiting wine regions and sharing my passion for food & wine with you. Come live vicariously through me, and enjoy all my recommended wines.

Don't make me whine. Please leave a comment!
