Time to Stop Whining and Start Wine-ing!

That’s right folks! No more whining about the weather, the Winnipeg Wine Festival is here!

From Sunday April 28th to Saturday May 4th, this popular annual festival provides a full week of delectable wine-tasting events.

The Winnipeg Wine Festival is an annual fundraising event for Special Olympics Manitoba. Now in its 12th year, the festival has grown to be one of the largest and most respected wine festivals in the country as well as the largest single fundraiser for SOM. Winnipeg’s public tastings boast the highest attendance in the country, with well over 6,500 people enjoying hundreds of wines from around the world.

With the exception of last year (due to my pregnancy), I have attended the Winnipeg Wine Festival for the past 5 years.  Every year I shout from the rooftops about how awesome it is!  I thoroughly enjoy the knowledge I gain from attending as well as the opportunities to meet new people.  The ancillary events are during the week and of course they save the public tastings for the weekend – check them out and please be responsible.

I’m a shiraz kinda girl so I’m looking forward to trying the offerings from this years theme countries: New Zealand and Argentina. Next year’s goal is to attend the exclusive gala!

Have you ever attended a wine festival? Where? What did you enjoy the most (other than the wine)?
