Salon des vins d’importation privée: 2012 edition

with one comment

The dates have been announced for this year’s private import wine expo, the Salon des vins d’importation privée. This is always the best wine show of the year – less crowded and unwieldy than the Grande dégustation de Montréal, filled with more interesting wines, populated by friendlier winemakers and agents, attracting a higher proportion of wine geeks and a lower proportion of tipplers.

The Montreal dates are Saturday, November 3, from noon to 8 p.m., and Sunday, November 4, from noon to 7 p.m. The venue is the Marché Bonsecours.

The Quebec City date is Tuesday, November 6, from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m., and the place is the Espaces Dalhousie.

Admission is $15. Coupons exchangeable for tastes can also be purchased, though not every booth requires them.
