(Victoria International Wine Festival)

The highly anticipated Victoria International Wine Festival (VICWF) is back for it’s eighth year and, this time, it has a brand new look. 

This November, the event is going industrial-chic, taking over Victoria’s historic Powerhouse Building.

The location will serve as the backdrop for a wine tour including over thirty five international vendors who will each showcase up to twelve different wines. 

“Our boutique festival offers an interactive experience; when guests walk in, we give the time to explore and engage with the presenters,” says Event Director David Bain.

 “Guests are encouraged to engage with the tables so they can learn the story of each winery, and its tasting notes first hand.”

Attendees will be able to meet international and local winemakers while sampling some of their soon to be new favourite wines.

“Guests can expect to walk through and learn about each of the wines and how best to consume them, but also hear the actual background story,” says Bain.

“These are wines made with love and care by growers; their stories are intriguing—some wines are new and other recipes were made in castles that go back to the 1600s.”

Tickets for the event will be available exclusively for newsletter subscribers on September 27th before becoming available to the general public on September 30th.
