Celebrating Vancouver wine

Celebrating Vancouver wineVancouver in British Columbia has a long tradition of wine-making and is popular among traveling wine connoisseurs.

Backpackers can venture out of their Vancouver hostels and spend a day visiting the award-winning vineyards in Vancouver Island and the Similkameen Valley.

In recognition of the important contribution wine makers have made to the Vancouver region, the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival is a much-anticipated annual occurrence.

Tickets for the 31st festival, which takes place from 23rd March 2009 until 29th March 2009, are on sale now.

Appearing at the wine festival will be 183 wine producers from 15 different countries showcasing their wares.

The event is described by organizers as the oldest and biggest celebration of wine in the world and is worth visiting by travelers hoping for a free glass of wine or two.

Discounted tickets are available for those who book early and backpackers hoping to get involved in the event may wish to consider giving up some of their free time to work as a volunteer.
