Windsor Eats Wins Innovator of the Year

A big honour for Windsor Eats.

The website, which focuses on all things food in Windsor-Essex, has been named Innovator of the Year by the Southwestern Ontario Tourism Corporation.

"It's something that we're pretty proud of and that's what we really try to strive for, being unique, being different and really stepping up above the rest of the crowd with all the different events, festivals and tours that we're doing," says Windsor-Eats co-owner, Adriano Ciotoli.

He says it's always nice to be recognized by your industry peers.

"We're always looking at taking a unique angle on things and doing something completely different from everyone else. I think that people are really starting to take notice of that. It's always nice when peers in the industry are recognizing you for that."

The latest edition to the slate of events and festivals hosted by Windsor Eats is the new Urban Wine Fest.

City council recently approved that event to go ahead June 28 and 29 in Lanspeary Park.
