Ended on Sunday, the edition of La Grande Dégustation is coming to your home! was a success, allowing wine enthusiasts and enthusiasts from all over Quebec to meet producers and make great discoveries.
Nearly 1,000 people took part in the virtual events, Les Petites Dégustations, in the company of some thirty wine producers, present in several countries.
Of course, the atmosphere of on-site meetings and conferences was lacking, but we wanted to provide a platform for exchanges and commissions to perpetuate the spirit of this great annual ritual.
The A3 Quebec team thanks all the participants for their enthusiasm and their mobilization, and sometimes for their indulgence with regard to small technical jolts. We have all gone out of our routine to meet new people, learn and have fun, around quality wines.
In the sales and orders department, the palpable enthusiasm shows the interest of Quebecers in the discovery of new products, carefully selected by member agents of A3 Quebec.
More than 1,000 orders have been placed and nearly 11,000 privately imported bottles ordered which will undoubtedly bring some color and flavor to the holiday season, in several Quebec establishments.
It is in this spirit that we also wish to meet you again, in 2021, this time in person, perhaps in a hybrid formula, certain apprenticeships having enabled us to join new amateurs and enthusiasts, in several regions.
We take this opportunity to thank our valued partner and co-presenter, the SAQ, for its constant support and major contribution to the edition which ended on Sunday. We are also indebted to the 9 experts who facilitated the meetings.
Our thoughts are also on restaurateurs, producers and all those involved in the great wine chain, who need all the support possible to get through this period.
Until then, take care of yourself, thank you to those who took part in this great experience.
