Wine enthusiasts across Victoria (and those visiting), you won’t want to miss this exceptional two-day wine opportunity. 

Gracing our taste buds on September 29th and 30th, is the annual Victoria International Wine Festival—a huge celebration of wine culture that brings community experts and wine lovers together to explore and savor the world’s finest wines.

This year, the festival will be hosting over 350 different unique wines spanning 15 different countries—and because the tickets are all inclusive, this event gives you the opportunity to discover limitless new wines and grow confidence in your own wine selection moving forward.

The Victoria International Wine Festival describes each bottle as its own unique journey, taking festival-goers to the sun-soaked vineyards of Spain, to the rolling hills of Tuscany, the luxurious lands of California, and much more. 

In fact, their focus this year will be the wines of California, with multiple prestigious wineries on site ready to present to you creations across the state—anywhere between the elegant Cabernet Sauvignons of Napa Valley to Sonoma County’s luscious Chardonnays.

Other proudly showcased, top-tier wines include bottles from Portugal, New Zealand, Greece, Germany, France, Canada, Croatia, Chile, Austria, Australia, and Argentina.
