Words to the Wise:
Buy early! Many events will sell out in advance.
We do our best to make everything perfect, but event details are subject to change without notice and without refund.
Please refrain from stinky stuff like perfume, cologne, aftershave and hairspray. The noses, palates and wines in the room will thank you.
Dress code: We suggest smart business or dress casual attire, and enthusiastically recommend black. (Red wine never looks good on white.) To go the distance in the Tasting Room, wear really comfortable shoes.
Access to the BC Liquor Stores Festival Wine Shop is for individuals with corresponding tasting room session tickets ONLY.
Please taste responsibly and make a plan. Stay overnight at one of our partner hotels. Take a taxi. Take transit; you can pick up a free bus transfer from the Get Home Safe booth outside the Tasting Room. Assign a designated driver. Walk. Just don’t drink and drive. We want you to get home safely.
At most Festival events, we serve tasting pours. Your job is to not swallow every ounce that is poured. Do master the fine art of spitting and/or dumping in the buckets provided at each station. If you don’t like to spit, feel free to sip and savor then pour out the rest of your glass.
