The Vancouver International Wine Festival, presented by The Vancouver Sun, runs February 24th until March 2nd, 2014 taking place at venues across downtown Vancouver.
From the Acura International Festival Tasting Room and Gold Pass Tasting Lounge to the Bacchanalia Gala, wine seminars, minglers, winery dinners, lunches, brunches, and grazings, it’s the schedule is packed and almost everything is already sold out. There are a few tickets left to some of the lunches and tastings but you had better act fast!
The Vancouver International Wine Festival is Canada’s premier food & wine event and it has three mandates: to provide an informative, educational and entertaining wine experience for public and trade; to be a premier marketing opportunity for the wine industry and festival partners; and to raise funds for the Bard on the Beach Theatre Society.
