Event Description: OntarioWineReview Cabernet Franc Challenge

A detailed description:

Over the course of five nights in November and into December (Nov. 8, 14, 20, 27 & Dec. 6), we?ll convene at The Fine Wine Reserve in downtown Toronto where we'll taste over 40 different wines from 34 Ontario wineries. The wines will be broken down into 3 categories: Cabernet Franc, Franc Blends, and Franc Reserves. Each night, we?ll taste between 7 and 10 different wines from that night?s category; tasting will be done blind (you?ll know the category but not the producer). Then, each taster will decide, based on a scale from 1 to 10, the following criteria: 1) do you like it; 2) would you buy it and 3) is it good value. There will also be a brief talk about Cabernet Franc, it's history and future in Ontario , all hosted by the Grape Guy himself, Michael Pinkus.

This is not a reviewers challenge, it is a people's challenge - your votes and feedback will determine Ontario 's Best Cabernet Franc.

Afterward we?ll mix and mingle for coffee and dessert ? featuring some special bottles of wine from area fruit wineries, Balderson cheese, some sweet treats and coffees from Raymond Emes & Co. There will also be door prizes from The Original Grape Shirt Company.
