Things have changed for us in 2020

We have pivoted the 2020 Festival to ensure we focus on creating a safe environment among all of our guests due to COVID. This year’s Festival will take place from November 1st – 8th in a wide range of seminars and wine dinners. All events will have limited capacity and have new protocols to manage COVID restrictions. A full list of events are below.

Take-Home Wine Boxes

Explore the Victoria International Wine Festival from the safety of your home. In partnership with Everything Wine, we have created a take-home box that matches each seminar. Wine box ticket holders will get an exclusive link to tune into the seminar to follow along live from our stream! Save big by buying these boxes. These boxes are limited due to limited quantities of these exclusive wines. Box details:
