Have you ever wondered which wine to pick when you visit your local liquor store or felt baffled by the seemingly endless selection?

The Victoria International Wine Festival is your perfect chance to have all your wine-selection questions answered.

The two-day event, which will satisfy novice and veteran wine-tasters alike, takes place at the Parkside Hotel and Spa on September 22nd and 23rd. Guests can enjoy a walk around the festival grounds while sipping on a selection of over 300 different types of wine.

Find something you love?

Simply mark it off in the handy brochure provided or buy it at Everything Wine’s on-site pop-up shop.

The festival wine selection is chosen by a leading panel of sommeliers who make their selections based on rarity, cost, and uniqueness.

No matter their level of wine experience, attendees will enjoy the flavours and discover new favourites.

Keep an eye out for more informative, digestible posts in the coming weeks to learn more.

The Victoria International Wine Festival: What you need to know

The Festival is broken down into tasting sessions, interspersed with educational seminars. Each session is 2.5 hours and tickets are sold for each of the session times.

If you want to enjoy all of the sessions at your leisure, buy a Super Pass, which will allow you to attend all sessions and seminars for one cost (which is a lot cheaper than buying each session/seminar individually).
