Throwback Thursday - i4C Cool Chardonnay World Tour 2018

The International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration is one of Niagara’s premier wine events. Winemakers come from across the globe to show off their delectable cool climate Chardonnays at four signature events throughout a weekend in July here in the heart of Niagara.


The signature event of the i4C weekend is the Cool Chardonnay World Tour. This is the only event during the weekend where every i4C wine will be poured. The event begins with a a tasting of the wines, presented by their winemakers. Then, an incredible dinner is created by some of Niagara’s best chefs, and it is served alongside Chardonnays and reds. The night is finished off with delectable desserts and dancing.

In 2018, we wanted the decor to reflect the al fresco setting, using flowers and greenery to adorn the grounds at Ridley College in St. Catharines.

We wanted to reflect the wine-ness of the event using corks and stelvin caps throughout. We also created a few different photo walls.

The flowers we chose were bright and summery and stood out against the white table linens.

For the 2019 celebration, the Cool Chardonnay World Tour will be moving to Niagara College in partnership with the Canadian Food and Wine Institute. We can’t wait for you to see the event come to life! You can still purchase tickets for the event at
