The celebration of Canadian wine, beer and spirits has become an integral part of the success of Gold Medal Plates. The wine, beer and spirits that are presented to the more than 5000 Gold Medal Plates guests gets more comprehensive and more fascinating each year. Gold Medal Plates is now the largest program in Canada to feature and highlight excellent Canadian wines.

The generosity of the Canadian industry is impressive and in 2015 a record eighty winemakers, brewers, and distillers donated tens of thousands of dollars worth of their products…and most donated their premium labels! At the VIP, guests get to sample unique product. During the culinary competition, the chefs pair their dish with their chosen wine, beer or spirit. And during the entertainment portion of the evening, guests are treated to some incredible labels. Guests go away educated and impressed with the caliber of Canadian wine, beer and spirits.
