Get that wine palate ready, it’s time to put your taste buds to the test. And no, you can’t ask Gary Vaynerchuk for his personal wine recommendations.
The Forks will once again host the International Wine Festival of Manitoba this weekend, as it celebrates its 20th anniversary.
Today until Sunday, an array of spectacular wines from across the world will be featured for tasting.
“A lot has changed in the world over the last twenty years, but one thing that remains the same is our appreciation for enjoying delicious wines with great people,” said Mo Razik, owner of Fenton’s Wine Merchants and festival organizer. “We are proud to be celebrating this benchmark anniversary.”
The festival will feature live jazz by local artists, seminars and wine experts will be on hand all weekend to offer suggestions and help as festival-goers discover the ancient art of wine tasting.
Admission to the festival is free and wine tasting tickets are 50 cents each. Net proceeds will be donated to Winnipeg Harvest.
The festival runs today from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and noon to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
