Sip on South America at the Vancouver International Wine Festival

The Vancouver International Wine Festival (VIWF) is back again this year with wines from all over the world. This year’s festival has 17 participating countries taking part in entertaining and educational events all over the city. Running from April 22-30th, the 44th VIWF is celebrating its legacy as one of the biggest and oldest wine events in the world.

While the festival will have a wide range of participating local wineries, South America is the featured wine region for 2023, with wines from Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Uruguay to sample in the Tasting Room.

Taste and Discover

The heart of the festival is the Tasting Room, where the public can choose from 800 wines at four International Festival Tastings, and industry professionals can sample those at two Trade Tastings. Past festival attendees may remember that the featured region has its own section in the Tasting Room and offers thematic seminars and food and wine pairings throughout the week. You can browse the full list of participating wineries by country before you make your way to each booth.

Many of the VIWF events are already sold out, so check out The Festival at a Glance to see what’s available (and to grab tickets that are going fast!)

VIFW not only provides entertainment and education, but it also raises funds for the Bard on the Beach Theatre Society.
