EUREKA! The California Wine Discovery in Toronto and Montréal

The California Wine Discovery event, held in Toronto on May 8th and Montreal on May 10th, proved to be a resounding success. This multifaceted event featured four key components: The Trade Master Class, Sparkling Wine Reception, Trade Luncheon, and Trade and Consumer Tasting.

An impressive turnout of over 300 trade professionals and more than 400 enthusiastic consumers gathered to explore a diverse selection of California wines.

The Montreal leg of our event achieved an extraordinary milestone by raising $34,000 CAD for the Pierre-Boucher Hospital Foundation, courtesy of the Judgment of Paris VIP event. Over 150 guests had the opportunity to rediscover the wines that made history in 1976. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our valued partners—Chalone, Freemark Abbey, Grgich Hills Estate, Chateau Montelena, Clos du Val, Ridge Vineyards, and Stag’s Leap—for their generous wine donations.
