Sampling a variety of Canadian wines from BC, Ontario, and Nova Scotia.

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 ingredients.

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!

This year, 2017, marks a big year for Canada as it turns 150 years young!
It seems like only yesterday that Canada was celebrating its centennial year, and here we are celebrating its Sesquicentennial . Yes! There is a word for it. I mean, you would have thought something like, " tri-semi-centennial ", but the actual term sounds almost like Sasquatch, making it just that much more Canadian.
