i4C July 23-25, 2021

Today the wine world lost a true legend. Steven Spurrier visited Ontario in the early 1980’s and returned in 2013 for the i4C as its keynote speaker. Ontario’s wine producers cherish the many memories that he gave to our entire industry, especially in recent years. A true gentleman, his knowledge and kindness was an inspiration – congratulating us on our accomplishments and inspiring us to continue to reach for the stars.

Rest in peace Steven.

The i4C, or International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration, is a wine event unlike any other that blends premium wines, Niagara’s world-class culinary scene and immersive wine education into a long weekend that absolutely overflows with fun.

With a grape guest list showcasing some of the most beloved vintages from the cool climate block, i4C offers a diverse range of wine, food and experiences that will appeal to wine lovers of all varietals.

As we navigate the current global situation our objective is to deliver exciting and compelling Covid aligned events from July 23-25 with details revealed in the coming months.
