We are thrilled that you would like to help share the bounty of British Columbia wines with Victoria, Vancouver Island and beyond at Taste Thursday July 14, 2016. British Columbia wine and cider are welcome! Taste the Difference, held at Hotel Grand Pacific, is designed to showcase the bounty of British Columbia and the great characters behind the wines.

AS WE ARE IN A WAITLIST SITUATION EACH YEAR, PLEASE APPLY BY EMAIL TO FESTIVAL FOUNDER, Kathy McAree BEGINNING JANUARY 11. Please note that not all applicants can be accepted.  Whether or not a principal/winemaker is attending will reflect your opportunity to be accepted to pour. ***Your wines and attendee names MUST be submitted prior to May 12, 2016.***

Doors open at 1:00pm for trade followed by the public tasting at 6:00pm. Location is Hotel Grand Pacific, 463 Belleville St, Victoria, BC V8V 1X3. We are hoping for 200+ trade to attend the tasting and 500 for the public tasting. Industry rates are available for overnight stays. Please request when making your reservation directly with the hotel.

Please be advised that all applicants must hold their own insurance for the events and you are agreeing to this by submitting your registration. Taste and Travel With Taste Tours Ltd. is not liable for its participants.

By submitting the application, you are agreeing to uphold the laws, rules and regulations set out by Taste. If you are a British Columbia licensed winery, you may apply to pour four British Columbia wines. If you wish, you may pour two additional wines for the trade tasting event only. Once your application is approved and paid, you will receive further information by email. Priority will be given to those wineries with a winemaker/proprietor attending. Taste reserves the right to refuse any application. Space is limited. Cost for each winery is $250 plus GST.
