The Vancouver International Wine Festival is widely regarded as the best consumer wine show on the continent, and the Acura International Festival Tasting room is the heart of it. The Wine World is Here.

The tasting room offers a unique opportunity to taste rare bottles and discover new treasures as you visit with renowned winery principals from around the globe. At each booth you will find a winery principal, identified by his or her royal blue lanyard. This person is a senior member of the winery, intimately involved in the wine-producing process as a winemaker, proprietor or senior executive. Nowhere else in the world will you find a gathering of these talented men and women pouring wine and answering questions under one roof. Take the opportunity to ask questions and learn from the experts about your favourite wine.

Each Acura Tasting Room session has its own style. Thursday night’s capacity is guaranteed to be 30 percent lower than the other two evenings, attracting wine collectors and trade professionals who appreciate more room to interact with the winery principals. Friday is great for groups and the after-work crowd looking to kick off the weekend in style. Saturday night is perfect for couples and friends wanting to enjoy a night on the town. And Saturday afternoon is the perfect introduction to the tasting room – or a great way to taste those wines you missed on Thursday or Friday – set against the stunning backdrop of Coal Harbour, Stanley Park and the North Shore. Groups of eight or more can save $10 each on Friday and Saturday sessions.

Please remember that this is a wine tasting. We strongly recommend that you enjoy a meal before setting out; however, you will find small food samples throughout the room. Be sure to visit the Dairy Farmers of Canada cheese tasting station – "All You Need Is Cheese" – to sample many fine Canadian cheeses.
