On May 11th, the Lifford Grand Tasting transformed Artscape Wychwood Barns from community space to international wine cellar.
Over 45 wine principals from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chile, France, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, United States were in attendance, pouring their best and mingling with the crowd.
It was a pleasure to showcase Lifford’s tremendous portfolio, all the while raising money for Delisle Youth Services, an amazing organization supporting children and youth through difficulties at school, at home or in the community. We can’t wait to do it again next year!
A special thank you to the winemakers who donated their wine and their time for the cause.
