At the Vancouver International Wine Festival there are over 1,750 wines, 14 participating countries, 170 wineries represented, and 53 events to attend. That’s a lot of glasses (not to mention empty bottles).
From February 20 to March 1, the 37th annual Vancouver International Wine Festival will hold sway over wine and food lovers yet again. The theme country this year is Australia, so it is a great opportunity to freshen your knowledge and appreciation of a wine-growing country that is much, much more than its famous fruit-forward shiraz.
