Live, In Person Trade Walk Around Tasting and Masterclass Lunch of German wines hosted by Master Sommeliers Jennifer Huether and John Szabo 


On June 28th, 2022, Wines of Germany brought together 2 of Canada’s Master Sommeliers, 100 trade guests and 8 wine agents for a walk around tasting of German wines, a blind tasting game and a Masterclass for the first time since the start of the pandemic. One hundred trade guests enjoyed an intimate walk around tasting from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm where they tasted wines from 11 different German producers currently available in the Ontario market via the E-Comm, Vintages and Consignment channels. 


For an element of fun and surprise, a blind tasting game was hosted by Master Sommelier and author of “The Social Herbivore”, Jennifer Huether, designed to challenge both the seasoned and intermediate taster, to identify LCBO general list and Vintages German wines. To round out the afternoon, from 12:00 – 2:00 pm, 50 guests were treated t0 a fine dining masterclass lunch where Jennifer was joined by Master Sommelier John Szabo, to share their recommendations on vegan and non-vegan pairings with 8 German wines.
