This Friday – March 27th, 2015 at 12 Noon central time – we will be offering a new SWEbinar: Cold as Ice - Myths and Realities of Canadian Wine. This session will be presented by Jordan Cowe, CWE. Jordan is a a newly-minted CWE based in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Session Synopsis: Think of a description of Canadian wine regions in your mind. Were dry deserts, big red wines, or Napa Valley heat levels even a consideration? No? Well – they should be – and it’s time to find out why! Take a journey across this not-so-frozen country and learn about the unique micro-climates that dot this extreme landscape from cool, sparkling-focused Nova Scotia to the humid, heat-drenched summers of Southern Ontario and on to the desert-like conditions in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley!
We’ll take a look at the geography, viticultural practices and winemaking techniques used to make wines in this country of extremes. Learn about current issues facing this developing wine culture as it tries to grow and enter a world market that knows it only for Icewine.
Our guest presenter, Jordan Cowe, CWE is a sommelier and wine educator in Canada’s largest wine region. Based in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Jordan teaches courses for sommeliers, wine professionals and consumers alike with the goal of instilling a more relaxed approach to wine. With a strong passion and connection to the Canadian wine industry Jordan would be happy to help address any specific topics of interests; he can be contacted at email@example.com with any questions or suggestions.
