Salut Wine + Food Festival Announces 2010 Events in Calgary and Toronto

Calgary, Alberta, Canada, February 26, 2010 --( Salut Wine + Food Festival will be returning to Calgary and Toronto for its second year this Spring. The 2010 Calgary festival will launch on Tuesday, April 6, with the Grand Finale dinner being held on Saturday, April 17. The Toronto festival will take place May 8 – 15, 2010.

Once again, the festival will feature a comprehensive program of events featuring international wine makers and celebrity chefs and highlighting some of the city’s best restaurants and venues.

“The festivals will follow a very similar format to last year”, notes Salut Festival Manager and Co-Chair, Don House. “Guests loved the diversity of the program and the interactive nature of the events. Meeting and speaking with award-winning vintners, experiencing wines from around the globe, watching celebrity chefs compete in iron chef competitions, attending informational seminars and indulging in some of the finest culinary fare, Salut Wine + Food Festival offers a range of activities for foodies, wine lovers and those looking to discover new tastes. Our focus remains on offering exceptional value, with premium quality at an affordable price”, says House.

A subtle change in name has taken place since last year with this year’s festival being called “Salut” – a small alteration from last year’s “Salute”. “Salute sounded very formal. But Salut has a lighter feel to it; it’s a friendly, casual greeting, reflecting the true sense of this festival. It’s about having fun, sharing the experience and enjoying the companionship of friends”, explains Paul Alsop, Festival Co-Chair, regarding the change.

The detailed roster of events and activities is available online at, and regular updates are also provided via Twitter and on the Salut Wine + Food Festival Facebook pages.
