Vancouver International Wine Festival “VINE STARS”

The Vancouver International Wine Festival is probably the largest wine festival in North American and it is certainly considered to be one of the best.


One of the reasons is their unique approach to the requirements of the Festival. For every winery that takes part in the Festival at least one principal must attend and be on hand whenever their winery’s wines are being poured. That means when you attend an event or the cornerstone of the Festival, the Acura International Tasting Room, you can expect to be greeted by either the winery owner, proprietor or the winemaker.

Meet some of these VIP’s that will be on hand at the Festival, starting with those from the Featured country – France.
