Gourmet Food & Wine Show 2016 - Toronto


German Royalty Graces the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo

TORONTO, CANADA – Wines of Germany actively participated in the 22nd annual Gourmet Food & Wine Expo held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from November 17th to 20th, 2016. The 30,000 attendees consisted of media professionals, industry guests and wine & food enthusiasts. 

Expo visitors had the unique opportunity to meet the newly crowned German Wine Queen, Lena Endesfelder at the popular Wines of Germany Lounge and sample over 20 German wines available in LCBO, VINTAGES and on consignment. As eloquently expressed by Wine Educator and Sommelier, Lesley Provost, "these wines represent eight of Germany's wine growing regions, seven of the finest grape varieties, with styles from dry to sweet to sparkling -- the 2016 Gourmet Food and Wine Expo offered wine lovers the chance to taste an incredibly diverse selection of the wines Germany has to offer." 

In keeping with the holiday spirit, Wines of Germany held an exclusive Christmas Market themed Tutored Tasting led by the editor of Vines Magazine, Christopher Waters, with support from Wine Queen Lena. The Queen entertained guests with tales of traditional Christmas at her family’s winery. The 50+ participants in attendance also had the opportunity to learn and experience “Christmas Market” for themselves while sampling eight select German wines paired with delectable German Christmas delights.
