Wine Tasting at at the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville Warden’s Award for Economic Development Leadership

We Poured Apple and Cranberry wine at the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville Warden’s Award for Economic Development Leadership in Roebuck, (near Spencerville) ON last night. (June 14, 2012) I had the opportunity to meet many of the Mayors and Councillors for the county and introduced them to our wines and winery. The event was organized by Deanna Clark and her generous invitation gave us a chance to promote ourselves to the whole County. It was wonderful to get a chance to talk with Deanna before the event started to learn a bit more about the structure and politics of the County. I was surprised to see MPP Steve Clark in attendance as well and had the chance to talk with him face-to-face for a few minutes. I also had the chance to apologise for being such a pain in the behind with all my questions... What a gracious man ;-) The event was catered by a team led by Marlene Neddo. They even stopped by my table and kindly left some snacks for me. For me, the event was all done in 2 hours, but I hope that the contacts we made serve to get people in other towns talking about us and with luck, including us in any visitor publicity they may put together.
