Victoria International Wine Festival

dsc_0001This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Victoria International Wine Festival in my capacity as a columnist for At Home Victoria Magazine. Not a bad way to spend the weekend, I might add! Sipping wines from around the world, sampling some amazing cheeses and interacting with wine aficionados!

A great place to talk about wine… and even better, a fantastic venue for wine sampling!

Vessel Liquor Store – purchase your favourites here!

The event was hosted by the Parkside Hotel, a beautiful hotel located in the heart of downtown Victoria, B.C. Its lovely setting also allowed for easy access and movement between displays and tasting stations. The Vessel Liquor Store carried wines that were featured at the festival, so it was convenient to stock up on your favourites! In addition to many Canadian wines, the festival also included wines from Argentina, Chile, France, Italy, Moldova, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, and the U.S.
