December 28th, 2007 we received a press release stating that Wine Guy TONY ASPLER was awarded the Order of Canada! This is surely an amazing award for an amazing individual.

"The Order of Canada is the centerpiece of Canada's honour system and recognizes a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation."

In Zoltan Szabo's opinion shared after the news broke, "Tony is the godfather of wine in Canada, a preacher with a big heart, a "wine guy" with outstanding knowledge and expertise...and ABOVE ALL he is one of the most incredible human beings that I have ever come across in my life!"

We were privileged to have him at our 'I heart Canadian Wine Social' back in November and to have him in our 2 Bottles & 2 Questions segment last month as well. To see last month's 2B2Q please click here.

Congrats Tony from all of us here at iYellow Wine Club!
