Ontario’s hottest wine event kicks off on March 1 with the Cuvée 2013 Grand Tasting Gala. New features have been added this year, making the gala event more buzz-worthy than ever before. Over 40 winemakers will play favourites and each will pour a wine which they feel most proud of. As always, guests have the opportunity to mingle with the winemakers as they sample locally inspired cuisine prepared at live cooking stations by 10 of Niagara’s top chefs.

Après Cuvée

Après Cuvée is returning in 2013, so even as the Grand Tasting winds down, the party keeps going with live music, dancing, an Icewine and Bubbles Bar and Craft Beer.

Cuvée en Route

Each Cuvée ticket is also a pass to Cuvée en Route, which allows guests to tour and taste along Niagara’s Wine Route from Friday through Sunday. En Route participants enjoy exclusive tastings, special meals and menu items at participating wineries and restaurants.
