Increase Your Wine Knowledge

During the public tasting sessions, sommeliers walk throughout the Festival grounds assisting attendees in navigating the tastings.

The Festival is inclusive of all kinds of palettes and flavour preferences and aims to increase the average consumers’ knowledge of wine by highlighting affordable wines.

“We focus on delivering an environment that is a welcoming place to sample wine while gaining knowledge of new wines in a format that is not intimating,” said David Bain, Festival Director.

“We then match this with wines selected from a panel of sommeliers that impress the most experienced wine enthusiast.”

“Bubbles Bash” Launch Party

The Festival kicks off on Thursday, September 20th with a special “Bubbles Bash”, which will highlight sparkling wines from around BC and the world.

Media, principals, and VIP’s will be invited to mingle with Festival ticket holders at the Parkside Hotel and Spa.
