Almost 1,500 different wines from 160 different wineries from 16 different countries spread across 8 days at 54 different events. Wow! It’s been an amazing week full of Vancouver International Wine Festival events! This was my first year participating and I absolutely loved every minute of it! From Monday nights Media Launch Party at Bentall Joeys, where we had the most incredible bites and a chance to meet the other bloggers and influencers attending the weeks events. To the main festival spread across the past few days to get a chance to try as many wines as possible.
I tried as many as I could handle, from mouth watering a frizzantes to $300+ bottle sip of the boldest reds. But I also loved the the non wine vendors who made their way to the festival, giving it a little extra with bites of pasta, sips of hot chai, choosing your match at Nespresso and Riedel showing off their Magnum glasses and mind boggling decanters.
The 41st annual event went incredibly smoothly and off without a hitch, I’m already looking forward to next years event! Find out more about their events here;
