A Canadian Invasion at the Vancouver International Wine Festival

O Canada!  Our 150th birthday is next year, 2017, and we need to celebrate.  The Vancouver International Wine Festival felt the spirit and chose Canada as the theme country for the Festival in 2017.  It is not just wineries from BC that you will get to see at the Festival.  There will also be wineries coming from Ontario and Nova Scotia.  So let’s look forward to some cooler climate wines; both still and sparkling!

Below is the list of ALL wineries participating at the Festival, Feb 11-19, 2017, along with links to their websites (thanks to the Festival for posting this information which I am providing a copy below).

Take some time to find out about some Canadian wineries you might not know about, as well as wineries from around the world.  As we move closer to the Festival, I will be posting more articles about the Festival and its wineries and events.  Stay tuned.  Cheers!

Drink Good Wine. That is my motto and I really want to help you drink good wine. What is good wine? That can be a different thing for each people. Some people prefer red wines. Some only like Cabernet Sauvignon.MyWinePal was started by Karl Kliparchuk, WSET. I spent many years with the South World Wine Society as the President and then cellar master. I met many great wine makers. I love to travel around the world, visiting wine regions and sharing my passion for food & wine with you. Come live vicariously through me, and enjoy all my recommended wines.
