The Wine World is Here for the Vancouver International Wine Festival, February 23 - March 3, 2019. Canada’s Premier Wine Show: Engaging, Educational, Entertaining. 

Widely considered to be the best wine event in North America, at 41 years of age Vancouver International Wine Festival is one of the biggest and oldest wine events in the world. It has been voted the “#1 Food, Wine & Hospitality Event in Canada” the last six years in a row by New York’s BizBash.

The Vancouver International Wine Festival welcomes the world's greatest wine producers and wine drinkers to its annual weeklong celebration of wine and food. From educational wine seminars, tastings and minglers to lunches, winery dinners, the spectacular Bacchanalia Gala Dinner + Auction and the Vintners Brunch there is something to please every palate. The Trade Days Conference portion of the festival runs from February 27 - March 1. 

The heart of the festival is the Tasting Room, where more than 750 wines are poured by the participating wineries at four public International Festival Tastings and two Trade Tastings. With principals in attendance this is your opportunity to meet the men and women behind the wine and ask them questions about the wine you're sampling. 

This international festival typically serves wines from ~15 countries with a focus on a different region or country every year. Come celebrate the wines of California as the 2019 Theme Region.  

The Vancouver International Wine Festival is a fundraiser for the Bard on the Beach Theatre Society.
