(Victoria Wine Festival)

Experience a global tasting voyage with over 400 wines from around the world!

The highly anticipated Victoria International Wine Festival is back for it’s ninth year and, this time, will be taking place in Victoria’s historic rail roundhouse—the Car Shop at Bayview Place.

The two-day event is expanding this year with the addition of Washington State wineries being added to the mix—making it the most extensive international wine tasting event to date.

Guests will have the opportunity brush up on their vintages and expand personal and professional sommelier skills with a wine portfolio including over 400 wines from 13 different countries.

This year’s Victoria International Wine Festival will take place September 23rd and 24th. There will be three tasting sessions, each lasting 2.5 hours, along with four seminars.

In addition to that, there will be three wine dinners taking place September 19th to the 22nd.

“We focus on creating an environment that is a welcoming place to sample wine for everyone,” said David Bain, Festival Director.

“We want people to be able to gain knowledge about new wines in a format that isn’t intimidating; we then match this experience with another, where wines selected by a panel of sommeliers will impress even the most experienced wine enthusiast,” added Bain.

Moving to the beautiful industrial heritage surroundings of the Car Shop at Bayview Place, Victoria International Wine Festival guests will be treated to a tour of the historic buildings while sipping and learning about everything from tasting to terroir.

Organizers said the Victoria International Wine Festival welcomes all types of wine connoisseurs and strives to include something for everyone!

Being a first for Victoria, Washington State Wines will be a part of this year’s event where a dedicated section at the festival will highlight wines poured by principals from this region with two seminars showcasing three generations of Washington State wines.
