Edmonton is about to get a massive wine and food festival on Friday, February 14 and Saturday, February 15 and you won't believe the insane wine selection. The Edmonton Winefest will be taking place at the Edmonton Convention Centre this weekend and tickets are selling fast. Whether you're a hardcore wine enthusiast or you're just looking for an excuse to sip and mingle, this event will take your weekend to the next level.
Celebrate Valentine's Day with your S/O, or with your friends, by savouring the most eclectic wine sourced from all over the world.
According to the Edmonton Winefest website, the festival's selection this year features over 300 different wines, listing choices from beloved wine havens such as Italy, France, Argentina and many, many others.
Winefest's most special draw is their booths exclusively dedicated to providing over 60 rosé wines.
So you know exactly where to set up shop if you're a huge fan of those sweet pink juices. It may not be summer, but rosé is always appropriate.
The festival will include three events over two days on Friday and Saturday. Both the evening events are from 7 to 10 p.m. and they're priced at $92 per person.
The Saturday afternoon event, unfortunately, is sold out, so you better rush to get your tickets for the evenings. Especially if you are looking for a different date idea from your standard Valentine's Day dinner.
Winefest is also partnering up with executive chef Serge Belair to provide some delectable bites that pair up perfectly with wine tastings.
With delicious items such as tater tot poutine, fried beef bites, and caramel churros served with ice-cream, you can be certain to satisfy your appetite as well as your love for wine.
In addition to the food and of course, the wine, Winefest has also lined up some tempting door prizes that you could win.
If you are lucky enough, you could find yourself going home with a lot more than a little wine buzz.
The door prizes include passes to Sunshine Village ski resort, tickets to Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival, and a bouquet of Rosé wines.
They say wine speaks to all the senses, so you're all set to have a sensational night sipping, swirling, and swallowing down the best wine you could even imagine.
