Let's go to Australia!
Join us to discover wines from Downunder
G’day! Leave your luggage at home & join Savvy Sommelier Debbie Trenholm for a fun evening sipping & sampling sparkling, white & red wines from Australia here in Ottawa.
Throughout the evening, Debbie will share stories about the different wine regions, wineries & winemakers. As the sun sets on the water (…alright, it is the Ottawa River not Sydney Harbour!), there’ll be ‘shrimps on the barbie’ along with hors d’oeuvres & artisan cheeses paired with the wine selection.
Little known facts…
- Australia's first vineyards were planted in 1788 in a small area near the Sydney Harbour Bridge?
- There are now 64 designated wine regions in Australia
- Australia is the 4th largest exporter of wine in the world
- Canada ranks as Australia’s 3rd largest market (behind US & UK).
Tickets to this special wine tasting event will sell quickly!
