Introduction

 

With the dual mandate of encouraging future talent and highlighting Ontario's professionals on the world stage, The Renaissance Project's Wine Tasting ChallengeTM was conceived and initiated in 2004 and was an immediate success.  It is an annual event that highlights Canada's brightest talent and brings together the world's best to compete at the highest level of competition, while sharing in the spirit and fellowship of the vine.  As the competition grew in notoriety and breadth, Brock University's Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute was appointed as the organizing, presenting and auditing body in 2005.

 

Now with the largest prize purse of it's kind in the world (upwards of $100,000 including cash, trips, stemware and scholarships), this competition is the most unique and largest wine tasting competition in the world.

 

Directed, operated and sponsored by many prestigious institutions and corporations, this competition is open to all professional sommeliers, food and wine industry professionals, students and all wine enthusiasts who wish to challenge themselves. Most importantly, the Wine Tasting Challenge is all about “giving back” celebrating excellence in front line wine service and supporting the future excellence in the Toronto/Ontario food and beverage industry.
