About the Seriously Cool Ontario Chardonnay Tasting
The seeds of the Seriously Cool Ontario Chardonnay Tasting which took place at Canada House in London on May 17 2010, were sown Cuvée weekend 2009. The idea came out of an interview of Thomas Bachelder by Matt Galloway on CBC Radio, about a tasting put on by the SAQ as a reprise of the ‘Judgement of Paris ‘ which launched California Wines in 1976.
At the tasting in London, 100 visitors, including Jancis Robinson, Oz Clarke and Steven Spurrier attended. 22 wineries pouring 40 wines took part, and even better, 44 people came from Canada to pour.
