Vancouver International Wine Festival Winery Application Window

May 3, 2024 - May 31, 2024

The 46th Vancouver International Wine Festival, Canada’s premier trade and consumer wine show, takes place February 22-March 2, 2025, with the winery application window now open. This is the pre-eminent opportunity to showcase and sample wines to British Columbia’s sophisticated wine audience, including collectors, buyers, sommeliers, media, and influencers. Key trade attendees have come from across Canada, including representatives from provincial liquor boards and top private retailers in Western Canada.

All selected wineries feature their products in the festival’s Tasting Room, which hosts two trade-only tastings and four consumer International Festival Tastings over the course of three days. All wines exhibited in the Tasting Room are sold onsite at the BCLIQUOR wine shop; in 2024, onsite sales topped $487,000!

Participating wineries have added opportunities to present their wines at seminars, winery dinners, wine minglers, lunches and more.

Approximately 140-160 wineries will be selected to participate in the 2025 festival. Canada’s premier wine show once again aims to attract some of the biggest wine industry names from around the world.

Note that winery applications must be submitted by a registered and active BC wine agent on behalf of suppliers they represent in the BC market.
