The highly popular Gourmet Food and Wine Expo returns to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in November. We're giving away some VIP Passes.
The immensely popular show returns to the MTCC for the 19th year with over 1,500 local and international alcoholic beverages available for tasting, along with a number of tutored tastings and cooking demos. This year Food Network chef Roger Mooking, who will be a judge on Chopped Canada, will be at the event all weekend hosting a variety of events including a taping of the show.
Full programming for this year's show was recently released, which includes the 'All you need is cheese' stage, The InterVin tasting lounge, and the Spiritology pavillion. Consumers can also vote on what they think is the hottest trend in beverages — choosing from categories like cider, British beer, Champagne, and Caesars.
As with previous years, we think the best time to check out the show is on the Thursday during the VIP preview. No line ups and a smaller crowd mean you have more opportunities to mingle with winemakers and producers as you taste your way through.
We're giving away a small number of VIP passes. Tell us about a new wine or grape variety you discovered this year in the comments below, to win a pair of VIP passes to the Thursday show (November 14th).
Note: VIP passes are only valid on the Thursday and do not include drink/food tickets. (Comments will close Friday, November 8th at 5pm. We will draw winners after that).
