Vancouver International Wine Festival wine dinners and events tickets now on sale - and selling fast - some sold out already!

Wonderful Penfolds wine dinner at the Pan Pacific Hotel's fabulous Five Sails restaurant

The fabulous Vancouver International Wine Festival's always-popular wine dinners tickets are on sale now and going fast - with some already sold out!  And the great wine events and seminars tickets are also available but there's no time to wait if you want to attend - move quickly! 

The VIWF runs from April 22-30 - with a regional focus on South America - and you can also buy tickets for the VIWF International Tastings from Thursday to Saturday - but once again, hurry because you won't see any for sale by the time of the events! Here's a link to the full schedule with sold out events and those going fast marked. 

I can't say enough good things about the wine dinners, where a fantastic winery pairs up with one of Vancouver's excellent restaurants to prepare a meal to remember with wines matching each dish!

Last year I was fortunate to attend the Penfolds wine dinner at the Pan Pacific Hotel's Five Sails restaurant and it was stupendous! 

You get a different wine with each course, selected carefully by the chef and the winery to beautifully match each dish and complement - or is it compliment - it perfectly!  The food - from rabbit rillette to rolled lamb breast to turbot - was excellent and the wines superb - including the Penfolds RWT 2010 and the Bin 149 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 - both very expensive bottles. 

And a wine representative - sometimes the winemaker or owner themselves - presents each wine and course with stories about the winery - it is a unique experience not to be missed.

Also fabulous are the many different events and seminars being held at the VIWF, from talking about terroir to the special joys of South American wines to a California Wine and Taco fest! 

So don't delay - buy today!  And see you there!
