A Wine Tasting Unlike Any Other

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 18, 2012) - Embrace the bold, abhor the bland. This is the credo that drove Ravenswood Wine from humble beginnings to worldwide success.

Joel Peterson's events will include a formal presentation of Ravenswood's history, winery and product offerings. Attendees will be treated to delectable food and wine parings featuring some of Ravenswood's most popular selections, such as:

  • Chardonnay VB 2010
  • Napa 2009
  • Lodi 2009
  • Sonoma 2008
  • Teldeschi 2007
  • Old Hill 2008
  • Belloni 2009

"In this brave new enologically altered world, where wineries compete to produce wines that mimic the latest darling that's captured wine reviewers' fancy, we stand by our love of Old-World winemaking. Ravenswood continues to set a standard for uncompromising wines that are true to the places where the grapes grew - nothing less, nothing more" said Joel Peterson.
