Raise a glass: 178 wineries from 14 countries are pouring 780 wines at the Vancouver International Wine Festival. This year promises to be especially effervescent, with themes focusing on “bubbly” and France. Attend galas, seminars, gourmet dinners and international tastings, all in support of the Bard on the Beach Theatre Society. Perennial favourites include Wine & Food Grazings and the Vintners Brunch. We’ll drink to that.
