Top Drop event enjoyed by so many people

Dubbed “The One Wine Tasting of the Year You Shouldn’t Miss,” by Western Living magazine, Top Drop Vancouver returns later this May, with continued focus on sustainably-farmed, handcrafted wines offering a distinct sense of place, without heavy-handed winemaking trickery to get in the way.

Over two days of Main Event grand tastings (May 23 + May 24), Top Drop offers Vancouver wine enthusiasts and professionals the opportunity to attend walk-around, casual soirée-styled tastings where sips and stories from the principals of dozens of international wineries will be on offer with exclusive pours, new releases, and exciting new finds.

With partial proceeds going to Vancouver’s B.C. Hospitality Foundation, Top Drop’s Main Events will be enjoyable, intimate experiences where everything from sparkling wines to rich, rugged reds will be poured. A handful of craft cider, and an array of international artisan cheeses to sample? Those will be on tap, as well.
