Wines of Germany was the featured theme country at the Victoria International Wine Festival from September 21 – 22, 2018, held at the Parkside Hotel and Spa in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia.
Over 800 festival attendees (trade, media and consumers) visited the Wines of Germany ‘Berlin Wall’ themed booth throughout the two-day event. Festival attendees had the opportunity to sample 10 of Germany’s finest wines consisting of Rieslings from dry to off-dry, sparkling wines, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Gewürztraminer.
The Wines of Germany booth created a vibrant Berlin wine bar ambiance with street art graffiti in the background. The booth also featured a tattoo artist who applied temporary ‘Riesling’ tattoos on those who dared.
“This is my favourite station! Thank you for walking us through the diversity of the wines and what makes each region unique. I liked German wines before, but now I love them” one consumer exclaimed at the Victoria International Wines Festival.
In addition to the being the featured theme country, Wines of Germany hosted a comprehensive German wine seminar for trade and media, presented by renowned wine educator and competition judge, DJ Kearney.
