Victoria Taste festival aims to satisfy palates

The annual Taste: Victoria’s Festival of Food and Wine is July 16 to 19 at Hotel Grand Pacific

Food and wine lovers are hungrily awaiting the Taste festival.

In its seventh year, the annual Taste: Victoria’s Festival of Food and Wine, set to take place July 16 to 19 at Hotel Grand Pacific, introduces wine professionals and dedicated chefs leading interactive culinary events including chef, winemaker and sommelier seminars and dining adventures.

Taste the Difference is the grand, opening night event with hundreds of B.C. wines to taste with winemakers and proprietors present to share their stories. Island restaurants will be serving tastes of their locally influenced cuisine.  Guests will meet the chefs and suppliers normally behind-the-scenes and will indulge in everything from line caught, local wild salmon and pork belly to maple bacon tarts and house-made gelato.

Events throughout the weekend are always intriguing with experiences and tastes available only once a year during the Taste festival.
