NL Seminar: Canada’s Big Reds: Yes we can!
Sat, 6 May 2017, 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM MDT
There is still a perception that Canada is not able to produce full bodied, structured red wines that are traditionally associated with other wine growing regions of the world. But with the diversity of soil conditions and micro-climates that exist in our country, the range of wines we can grow well does include bold, full bodied reds that can satisfy any big red drinker, while still possessing and expressing the freshness of our cool climate.
