This year, Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary. So it makes sense that the featured country at this year’s Vancouver International Wine Festival should be, well, Canada.
Over 70 Canadian wineries will be featured at this year’s fest, including many from B.C. (of course), but also from Ontario and the East Coast. According to the wine fest, “This marks the largest gathering of Canadian wineries ever at an international festival.”
Other numbers to keep in mind are the dates of the festival, Feb. 11-19; the number of events, 58; and how many, as of this posting, have sold out since tickets went on sale last week, 15 – an amount that reflects the festival’s ever-growing popularity among oenophiles.
With that in mind, let’s look at a few of the events that still have tickets left.
