The Forks will host the 18th Annual International Wine Festival this weekend in support of Winnipeg Harvest. Manitobans are encouraged to go and sample a variety of wines from all over the world while making a difference at the same time. This annual tasteful event takes place October 16-18 with Friday’s hours from 4:30 to 9 p.m. and Saturday/Sunday from 12-6 p.m.
Over 100 wineries will be represented this year along with a cheese booth. Over 750 varieties of cheese, pâtés and other goodies will be offered to enhance the wine tasting experience.
Last year’s proceeds from the festival helped Winnipeg Harvest move 10,000 pounds of food to its clients throughout Manitoba.
