Additional information

The ITHQ advocates moderate and responsible drinking. With this in mind, it is up to you to taste all or part of the alcoholic beverages that will be served to you.

To allow you to fully enjoy your evening, we also recommend that you plan an alternative means of transportation (public transport, cab, etc.).

Please avoid wearing heavy perfume to avoid altering the aromas of the wines and to promote an optimal tasting experience.

The ITHQ invites you to eat before your wine and spirits course to reduce the effects of alcohol.

In order to comply with Québec’s law on the consumption of alcoholic beverages, the ITHQ cannot admit people under the age of 18 years to courses and workshops. Therefore, our workshop leaders are required to ask for identification from participants who appear to be 25 years old or younger.

A certificate of attendance will be deposited in your customer account at the end of your wine and spirits course.

Payment can be made online by Visa, MasterCard or American Express.
