Mount Washington’s popular Alpine Wine Festival returns Aug. 9 and is quickly followed by a Wine Pairing Dinner on Aug. 10.
This year’s festival features one of the most diverse selections of wine in recent memory. “We have an unbelievable range of wines to sample from this year,” says mountain spokesperson Brent Curtain. “There will be wines from our local region, nationally and even some international varietals. “Friday’s Alpine Wine Festival will deliver some of the more traditional flavours you would expect in the world of wine, but there will definitely be some unique, new surprises for your palate,” Curtain adds. The event will provide guests with an opportunity to sample new varietals, ciders, meads and fruit wines, all in a spectacular setting at the Raven Lodge overlooking the peaks of Strathcona Provincial Park. All of the sampling will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Proceeds from the Alpine Wine Festival will benefit the Vancouver Island Mountain Sports Society. VIMSS will also host a silent auction throughout the evening.
