What better way to celebrate the Valentine’s Day weekend than attending the 2014 Edmonton Winefest!

I’m giving away a pair of tickets! :)

From the website:

Winefest Edmonton is back to spoil your senses. This all-inclusive event allows the opportunity to ‘try before you buy’ within a casually refined atmosphere – every sip and sample is included in the ticket price. At Winefest, wine experts are available to share their knowledge as consumers taste their way from booth to booth, providing tasting notes while educating the palate and senses. Savour a delicious selection of hors d’oeuvres in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.

This year’s event runs Feb. 14 & 15 at the Shaw Conference Centre.

  1. Any kind of wine with hot pot! The wine just flows freely when I host one of these gastronomic extravaganzas!

  2. After only recently moving to Edmonton from Ireland, I have discovered the delights of an Argentinian Malbec with AAA Alberta Steak. Perfect!!
