Vancouver International Wine Festival February 24 – February 28 (West Building)
The wine world comes to Vancouver for Canada’s premier wine show. The Vancouver International Wine Festival is one of the biggest and oldest wine events in the world, offering something for every level of wine drinker, collector and trade professional. Each year, winery principals (winemaker, proprietor, senior executive) representing 155-170 wineries from 14-16 countries travel to Vancouver to pour and discuss their wines at more than 50 events over eight days. The 2015 festival had 25,000 attendees and participants. Each year, this international festival shines the spotlight on one country or region, which has more wineries, wines and events than any other.
