JORDAN, ON, Jan. 6 /CNW/ - It's now a tradition…the Twenty Valley Winter

again this year. Visitors to the Winter WineFest in festive Jordan
Village can choose from over 90 wines from 33 area wineries, with
Icewine again sharing centre stage with some of Ontario's best
sparkling and premium VQA wines.
Tawse Winery - named Canadian Winery of the Year - will lead a long list
of award-winning wineries pouring special vintages at the event. Their
2008 Robyn's Block Chardonnay won White Wine of the Year in 2010 and
