Sip your way around the world at wine fest
The Victoria International Wine Festival takes place from Sept. 20 to 22 at the Parkside Hotel and Spa, 810 Humboldt St. During the three days of events, hundreds of wines from around the world will be showcased.
At wine tastings next Friday evening, and Saturday afternoon and evening, attendees can leisurely enjoy sample-size glasses of a variety of wines. Small bites — not meal-sized amounts — of food that complement the wines will also be served.
Tickets for those tastings are $75 per person plus fees and taxes. If you enjoy some of the wines you’ve tried, you’ll also be able to buy them at the festival’s onsite wine shop.
On Friday and Saturday, you can attend wine seminars on topics including rosés, Argentinean wine and the history of some of the world’s top wines. Seminars are $40 per person plus fees and taxes.
The Victoria International Wine Festival is open to those 19 or older. Organizers suggest wearing business casual attire and not using any perfumes or colognes that will interfere with the aromas of the wine.
