Sparkling wine showcase at Brock


Winemakers across the country will gather at Brock University Thursday for the annual meeting of the Fizz Club.

A total of 80 of Canada's top sparkling winemakers will compare notes, discuss challenges and successes as well as learn about new research developments.

The event is organized by the school's Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute.

Senior scientists, Belinda Kemp says “When we started this, most of the winemakers who attended Fizz Club were based in Niagara, but six years later, we have winemakers coming from all across Canada, including more than 20 wineries from Quebec.”
