Winefest Edmonton is back to spoil your senses. This all-inclusive event allows you to 'try before you buy' within a casually refined atmosphere - every sip and sample is included in the ticket price.

A decadent selection of hors d'oeuvres is served in a relaxed, yet fun atmosphere. Attendees can take advantage of an onsite Sobeys Liquor and Safeway Wine & Spirits store to purchase their favourite finds to enjoy at home. Also included in the ticket price are a Tasting Notebook and complimentary wine glass.
