The Victoria International Wine Festival Returns with a New and Prestigious Regional Partner!
The wine festival returns this year— moving to Victoria’s historic rail roundhouse—the Car Shop at Bayview Place from September 23rd – 24th.
Experience a global tasting voyage with over 400 wines from around the world.
The Victoria International Wine Festival expands to a new venue with a key regional partner; extending its border this year by partnering with Washington State Wines to showcase Victoria’s most extensive international wine tasting event to date.
Brush up on your vintages and expand your personal and professional sommelier skills with a wine portfolio including over 400 wines from 13 different countries.
The festival showcases—
• Three tasting sessions, each lasting 2.5 hours
• Four seminars
• Three wine dinners
Stepping up into a larger space, the Victoria International Wine Festival moves to the beautiful industrial, heritage surrounds of the Car Shop at Bayview Place. Guests can expect to tour the historic buildings while sipping and learning about everything from tasting to terroir. Aiming to increase guests’ wine knowledge while highlighting affordable wines, sommeliers will mingle with attendees throughout the festival grounds, assisting tasters by answering questions, making suggestions, and facilitating new finds. The Victoria International Wine Festival is proud to welcome all types of wine palate – from beginner to connoisseur and strives to include something for everyone!
These tickets are a limited item! The festival has sold out every year— well in advance of the event.

A first for Victoria, our partnership with Washington State Wines is being enthusiastically welcomed as the 2022 regional feature; a dedicated section at the festival will highlight wines poured by principals from this region with two seminars showcasing three generations of Washington State wines.
“We focus on creating an environment that is a welcoming place to sample wine for everyone,” says David Bain, Festival Director. “We want people to be able to gain knowledge about new wines in a format that isn’t intimidating; we then match this experience with another, where wines selected by a panel of sommeliers will impress even the most experienced wine enthusiast.”
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada is a city surrounded by natural beauty, blessed with a Mediterranean climate, coloured with gardens and home to a lively food and wine scene. For the past six years the sought after Victoria International Wine Festival hosts a collection of the best in international wine each September. The Victoria International Wine Festival is directed at building the knowledge of the average wine consumer, and demonstrating new wines and acknowledging beloved wine standards to veteran consumers.
