In the 2nd installment of its "Explore Canada" series, the Tokai Japan Canada Society’s Business Committee brought together a diverse group of over 60 individuals for an exclusively Canadian Wine Tasting event.
Participants were able to sample 12 different
Canadian wines from top wineries in British Columbia, Ontario, and Nova Scotia,
as well as a variety of delicious hors d’oeuvres made with distinctly Canadian
The wine tasting, and accompanying explanations were organized and presented by Jamie Paquin of Heavenly Vines – a Tokyo-based purveyor of “distinctive Canadian wines” .
The event was hosted by Sienna Steakhouse & Bar , who also provided the fabulous food for the event. Sienna is Canadian owned and operated and quickly becoming known in Nagoya as a great place for upscale dining at very reasonable prices, and the menu features a number of Canadian (or Canadian inspired) dishes.
Not generally thought of as a wine producing Country, it was interesting to learn just how many great wines are coming out of Canada, and from coast to coast, too!
On Friday June 2nd, 2017, the Tokai Japan Canada Society held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) and hosted a lunch, welcoming the newly appointed Canadian Ambassador, Ian Burney , to Nagoya, the Chubu region, and to the TJCS.
The joint event, which was held at the Nagoya Hilton Hotel, was attended by both individual and corporate membership of the society, the local Canadian Consul, Chénier La Salle , as well as many of our honourary members and guests.
