The Winnipeg Wine Festival is a fundraising event for Special Olympics Manitoba that takes place in the fall at the RBC Convention Centre. Attendees can purchase tickets, which include admission, a souvenir tasting glass, and three hours of sampling on the tasting floor, as well as exciting new tasting experiences. Tickets can be purchased at Manitoba Liquor Marts or online.
One of the highlights of the festival is the Inspire Gala Dinner & Auction, an evening of incredible wine and food pairings with a live auction featuring wine packages that include travel and experiences. The evening begins with a wine reception at 6 PM, followed by a gourmet meal at 7 PM, with each course expertly paired with wines from around the globe.
In addition to the Gala Dinner, the Winnipeg Wine Festival also features a variety of WineDown Events, including Brunch & Bubbles, World of Wine, Cruisin’ California, Italian ‘Kitchen’ Party, Vive le Vin, and Down Under. Tickets for these events are limited and sell out quickly, so be sure to purchase yours in advance to avoid disappointment. Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or just looking for a fun and unique event to attend, the Winnipeg Wine Festival has something for everyone.
