The Great Italian Wine Encounter 2014

January 28 and 29, 2014

Vendemmia International Wines is an importer and marketer of some of Italy’s greatest winemakers and their wines. A shared commitment, with our wine maker partners and our clients, to the betterment of life, the strengthening of relationships, with family, friends and our community, allows us to enrich each others lives.

Today, Vendemmia represents 65 winemakers; our list continues to grow, as we find individuals that share the same tenets. Our commitment to the betterment of our community has allowed us to be a major donor to the Apherisis Clinic in Calgary, a clinic dedicated to the cure of Leukemias, Lymphomas, and Bone Marrow Cancers. Last year, the clinic treated over 1000 patients from all over Canada.

Day after day, we are all rewarded by our relationships; our inherent respect for the power of wine and the tireless commitment of our winemakers is exemplified by all we do.

Join 17 of Italy’s Greatest Winemakers for an afternoon of their
best wines.

17 winemakers, from all over Italy, will showcase their finest wines to a selected crowd of wine enthusiasts, in a stand up, engaging format.
