Delegates attending Congress 2014 will have the opportunity to taste some of Ontario’s top wine at the Sipping Ontario wine with the stars seminar. The event’s second session will take place Wednesday, May 28 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Sankey Chamber and is organized by Brock’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI).
“The session will feature seven award-winning wines made right here in Ontario by Brock University alumni, in a fun and light-hearted atmosphere” says Barb Tatarnic, manager of outreach services at CCOVI.
Participants will sip and learn while guessing what movies famous film clips featuring wine are from. Wine educator Linda Bramble will facilitate the session and answer any questions in a relaxed, informal environment. Registration for the event is done at the door and is reserved for the first 50 participants. A fee of $20 (cash only) will be charged to cover the cost of the wine. The event is part of the Congress Plus program, which highlight’s some of Brock’s academic and cultural programs.
For Congress attendees looking to visit local wineries, daily tours are available to Niagara-on-the-Lake and the Twenty Valley and Beamsville Bench through Winery Tours of Niagara. The tours highlight wineries where alumni of Brock’s Oenology and Viticulture degree program work as well as wineries that partner with Brock on research projects.
