Canada Day celebration + Cool ChardonnayBack to Archive
A Message from Ed
I LOVE summer! We're kicking off summer right with a rockin' Canada Day weekend celebration. Join us on our Green Roof Patio for some refreshing wines, wood-fired pizza and our favourite local band, Mosaik. Also I am so pleased and honoured to be apart of the second International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration. For three days in July, Chardonnay enthusiasts will have the opportunity to taste over 110 cool climate Chardonnays from around the world including many from our own backyard. Read on below for more information, but don't wait to buy your tickets...they are going quickly.
Do you know how cool we really are?

If you don't, join Ed and Ross along with principals and winemakers from 54 other international and Canadian Cool Climate wineries for a Chardonnay filled weekend. From July 20th to the 22nd Niagara will be swirling, sniffing and tasting over 110 Chardonnay from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chile, France, New Zealand and the United States.
With a variety of educational experiences and events happening all weekend long, you get to 'blend' your own event. Sit in on the Extreme Winemaking 101 seminar (includes lunch) at Brock University on Friday, then sip and dance the night away at the Official Kick-Off Event at Jackson Triggs featuring The Arkells.
Saturday mosey on down to Flat Rock Cellars for our Freudian inspired luncheon, Alter Egos: Different places, different faces. Join VINES Magazine Editor, Christopher Waters and six winemakers as we explore the many different 'personalities' of Chardonnay. Following a fun and interactive tasting, join us in our winemaking facility for an amazing five course lunch menu prepared by Chef Jeremy Taft of haute Caribou (PEC).
