The Niagara Food & Wine Expo is gearing up for this year’s show with plenty of opportunities to sample fine food, wine, beer and spirits. Last year’s event — see here for coverage — was well attended with no shortage of tasty options to tantalize the palate.
I’ll be there again this year, that’s me above, and look forward to sharing my experiences with you here at Wines In Niagara. Here is a recent news release about this year’s event.
NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. – The Niagara Food & Wine Expo is returning once again with fantastic grapes, hops and food for everyone. Event organizers are pulling in some of the finest grape growers, master brewers and winemakers from around the world to offer a full-blown food and wine experience, in which guests can sample wares from around the globe and learn more about wine firsthand from industry experts.
The Niagara Food & Wine Expo is Niagara’s premier international tasting event featuring wines, beers and spirits from around the globe and stunning regional wines direct from neighbouring vineyards. The event runs from April 26-28 at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls, Ont. The delectable samples will be served alongside fresh, local cuisine prepared by top area restaurants.
“We want guests to get the most out of their experience,” said Christopher Waters of the Niagara Food & Wine Expo. “Our Tutored Tastings wine classes let you taste great wines from around the world, while learning from the experts.”
New this year is the Celebrity Live Auction that will be hosted by Kevin Brauch on Saturday, April 27 at 5 p.m., with proceeds supporting the Breast Cancer Society. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on a 90-minute personal tour of the Niagara Food & Wine Expo, to be led by one of the industry experts: TV personality Kevin Brauch, wine expert Christopher Waters, Hernder Estates winemaker Lydia Tomek (above) or Sue-Ann Staff Wines and Megalomaniac Wines winemaker Sue-Ann Staff.
