Boasting 175 wineries from over a dozen countries and a wide spread of seminars, dinners, events and all things wine related, Vancouver is hosting its 35th annual International Wine Festival set to continue until March 3rd at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

The year was 1979, and the list of wineries was limited to one: California’s Robert Mondavi.


Now heading into its 35th year, the fest has 175 wineries from 15 countries at dozens of events, including galas, seminars, brunches, gourmet dinners and international tastings – and it’s returning to its California roots, with 62 wineries from the Golden State alone.
