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!

It'll be a once in a lifetime trip!
