Top Drop: Terroir-style wine fest returns to Calgary this month
Top Drop, a popular terroir-style wine fest, is returning to Calgary this month.
On Friday, May 26, the unique festival will be taking place at The Hemingway Room at The Commons. It will be a celebration of dozens of international, terroir-focused wineries and the people behind them.
The continued focus of this event is to feature “sustainably-farmed, handcrafted wines offering a distinct sense of place, without heavy-handed winemaking trickery to get in the way.”
Both wine enthusiasts and professionals that attend will be able to walk around and take part in casual soirée-styled tastings from the principals of dozens of international wineries. Access to exclusive pours, new releases, and exciting new finds is the draw for many that come here.

Some of the wine producers that will be attending include Planeta from Italy, Long Meadow Ranch from Napa Valley, and Res Fortes Wines from France, to name a few.
