2017 marked the third Annual Sommelier Scavenger Hunt hosted by the Wine & Spirits magazine. Four teams of three sommeliers competed to find the most site-expressive North American pinot noirs. Their challenge was to present six different wines (call it the Six Essential Ontario Pinot Noirs: Norman Hardie, Pearl Morissette, Bachelder, Hidden Bench, Flat Rock, Coyote's Run) to an audience of industry professionals, delivering an all-encompassing picture of the region’s characteristics.
