Gifting suites are a mainstay of awards shows in Hollywood, providing free goods and services to the film and television industry to gain awareness and interest.
Oh Canada marked the first time which was Stewart’s idea. “We all had a great time meeting celebrities and journalists and telling them about our products, said Stewart, whose new Lilyfield brownies were an instant hit. “But more importantly, the stars had a wonderful time. Some stayed for hours, and one even came back the second day!”
Oh Canada was latest addition to Celebrity SWAG suite and Canadian products and services from Manitoba, Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal, were housed together in a single gifting suite,
I have a deep love for Canada and it’s been my experience that the Canadians love fine things and this suite certainly proved my point as we experienced some of the lovely products of Canada.

as designer Dayle Goertzen takes
original vintage pieces and beautifully remakes them into exquisite, unique

so glad I’m now aware of the site.

Northern Ice House Winery is an ultra-premium brand so exceptional that three of its products have won the coveted Grand Gold at the International Monde Selection awards in Belgium. A Grand Gold Award is superior to Gold and is seldom awarded in international wine competitions. Jamie Macfarlane is President and wine master for The Ice House Winery, a small boutique winery located in the Niagara-on-the-lake region of Ontario. "I'm tickled to have won the bragging rights, as this solidifies Canada's position at the forefront of the global Ice wine industry."
I have always been a huge fan of ice wine since I visited a winery in Niagara-On-The-Lake—it was my favorite wine and I brought a lot of it back to the states---in fact I still had a bottle at home. When I tasted this amazing ice wine—I thought it was as good as the one I had at home. How surprised was I to find that this was the very same wine that I coveted. If you like sweet wines—this one is for you!
