Winefest is back in town!
'Swirl, sip and savour for three hours at an all-inclusive wine sampling event! Winefest invites Edmontonians to spend an afternoon or evening indulging in a vast selection of local and international wines, ports, sparkling and dessert wines from the world's most celebrated wine regions. Now in its fourth year, this celebration of wine will take place February 17 - 18 at the Shaw Conference Centre, Hall D.
“Winefest offers the unique opportunity to ‘try before you buy,” said Cathy Miller, Festival Director. “Attendees have the opportunity to explore new wineries and savour some of their tried and true favourites. Guests can pair their wines with this year’s selection of gourmet nibbles – from mouthwatering cheese, chocolates and olives to an assortment of hors d’oeuvres.”
Winefest is a playground for the palate, where attendees can enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres in a casually refined atmosphere. During the tasting session, guests can get to know their grapes, as knowledgeable experts point out subtle tasting notes and pairing tips. One ticket includes unlimited tastings, as well as a complimentary Riedel wine glass and a Tasting Notebook. Furthermore, an onsite Liquor Depot store will be available where guests can purchase their favourite finds of the night.
Featuring 227 wines from 55 wineries across the globe, this year’s festival will showcase wineries from fifteen different countries including; Canada, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Georgia, Chile, Moldova, Argentina, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Holland, Israel and Japan. New and old world wines, unique labels, port and dessert wines will also be available for sampling' (Winefest Press Release, more details can be found on their website HERE)
