Cuvée 2015 and Experts tasting

 

Cuvée

Cuvée is a grand event, where Ontario’s entire wine industry (winery owners, winemakers, educators, media and even members of the LCBO) celebrate accomplishments gained in the preceding year and reflect on achieved successes since industry’s beginnings nearly 38 years ago. This year, the task to organize the 27th Cuvée was handed over to Brock University’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI) after Niagara Community Foundation coordinated it for 11 years. This was the second Cuvée I’ve had a chance to attend and in last year’s Cuvée 2014 article, I describe in detail its history, the procession, awards handed out and the weekend’s Cuvée En Route passport event. Since this year’s organization was slightly different (as was my focus), this article reflects those details.
