An Hour of World Class/All Star guests from Australia with The Wine Diva @ 2015 Vancouver International Wine Festival.
February of this year the featured region at the 2015 Vancouver Wine Festival was Australia and the featured varietal was Syrah. Talk about a beautiful pairing!!
The buzz after the festival was how the Australians completely took over the city, the tasting room, the restaurants and in the bars.
Nobody markets themselves better than the Australians and lately very few countries can claim to making better wines.
Canada’s premier wine show marks its 37th anniversary . 14 countries 170 wineries 8 days 1,750+ wines 25,000 participants 2015 theme country (Australia): 55 wineries from 20 distinct regions pouring 220 wines 2015 global focus (Syrah): 170+ expressions of Syrah from around the world in The Tasting Room
Rarely does a wine festival guest list get any better than the one below…
