The California Wine Fair, sponsored by the U.S. Mission to Canada and the U.S. Foreign Agricultural Service, stopped by the Westin Hotel in Ottawa for its 2014 Canadian Tour on April 4, 2014. Ambassador Bruce Heyman and his wife Vicki Heyman were among the many visitors to the trade section of the fair. They met and talked to representatives from a number of wineries.
The Ottawa fair hosted more than 70 California Vineyards and provided an opportunity for them to introduce to the trade and the public their newest and best vintages from across the Golden State. This is the 35th year of the fair, which also toured Quebec City, Montreal and Toronto and will be touring Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Moncton and Halifax later this month.
