The international Landmarks of Wine Culture exhibit will make its world premiere in Montreal from October 5 to November 2, 2017

MONTREAL, September 18, 2017 — In honour of two landmark anniversaries—Canada’s 150th and Montreal’s 375th—Wines of Germany is giving Montrealers the opportunity to discover the world premiere of the Landmarks of Wine Culture exhibit, documenting the history and tradition of German winemaking. The exhibit, taking place in Hôtel Gault’s lobby and library from October 5 to November 2, is free and open to the public.

To promote the exhibit, three receptions will be held on Thursday evenings, October 12, 19 and 26. These events will give Montrealers the chance to admire the photography while enjoying a complimentary glass of German wine. While admission is free, guests will have to register online for the receptions.

The exhibit, featuring 13 large-scale images chosen from a selection of over 52 photographs, highlights the diversity of German wines and grape varieties from its 13 wine regions. It is the first time that this exhibit has travelled internationally. The collection features the work of photographers documenting German wine heritage and the everyday life of German winemakers. Landmarks of Wine Culture is an out-of-the-ordinary guided tour of Germany’s major vineyards; its large sized images highlight the seamless blend of tradition and modernity in the country’s vineyards.

“We’re thrilled to share this magnificent collection of photographs,” says Ted Kalaboukis, Director, Wines of Germany (Canada). “We also want to raise our glass to German wine lovers in Montreal, and highlight the city’s 375th.”

Every year, hundreds of thousands of tourists visit Germany’s wine regions to discover breathtaking scenery, meet fascinating people and visit fairy tale villages and estates. Landmarks of Wine Culture offers a glimpse into over 2,000 years of German winemaking, giving visitors the chance to discover the country’s most beautiful wineries without having to leave their hometown.

Guests can also enter to win a trip to Germany by taking a selfie in front of their favourite photograph and sharing it on social media with the hashtag #cultureduvinallemand.
