We recently attended a grand tasting at the annual Vancouver International Wine Festival, and had a fantastic time. This year’s focus was on France, with 42 wineries representing the country’s diverse wine regions. In total, 162 wineries from 16 countries poured at 57 events over the eight-day festival. Consequently, about 1,450 wines were shared with 25,000 participants.
Meanwhile, the International Festival Tasting Room formed the heart of the event, where some 780 wines were available for sampling at the grand tastings. Read on for some favorites.
