Celebrating 25 years

Passionate wine and food lovers descend on Toronto's Metropolitan Convention Centre each November for the region's largest event of its kind. How passionate are we talking? Well, let's just say any event that lures the best national chefs, local culinary stars, celebrated winemakers, brewmasters and mixologists means serious gastronomic business. That being said, our hope is you will join us this fall, November 21-24, 2019 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, and be our special guests at Canada's biggest and best food and beverage event.
