14 Applewood Probians and wives visited the Canadian Food and Wine Institute at Niagara College on September 27. A great time was enjoyed by all – wine tasting and beer tasting, followed by a delicious lunch at their “Benchmark” restaurant. Most of our hosts were students, who are learning useful skills which, we were told, will virtually guarantee them a job in the industry. Looked like more fun than engineering, accounting, or law!
"Fantastic wine, beer and food experience at the Niagara Food and Wine College near Niagara on the Lake.
Seven Probians and wives attended a 3 hr tour and lunch all handled by students attending courses at the college.
Many students attend 3 to 4 year courses and have a 100% placement rate in the food, wine and beer industries."
