The 2009 Culinary Wine Tasting and Dinner, named "A Gondola to your Favourite Vineyard" was a huge success. The event raised close to $10,000 for the Institute and all participants had a wonderful time. This year's event featured wines from the Venuto region, including a special vintage from Friulano. The meal was prepared in true Venetian style thanks to the careful preparation of the chef at Whitewater Golf Club. The event was sold out for the 3rd year in a row, leaving guests anxious to sample wines from yet another region of Italy in 2010.
