2008 Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival (Feb 25-Mar 2, 2008)

The Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre present the annual Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival.  This is Canada‘s premier wine event. There will several wines from different regions of the World. This event includes winery dinners at some of the city’s finest restaurants, formal wine tastings, seminars, food and wine business. 

Here are some tips when drinking wine: 

1. Swirl. Gently swirl the wine in the glass to release the aromas.
 

2. See. Look at the wine’s color; it sets up expectations. Red wine picks up color as it picks up flavor from the skins and seeds. Wine with an intense color is likely to have an intense flavor. Keep in mind that red wine lightens with age, and white wine darkens with age.
 

3. Sniff. Get your nose in the glass, you can’t be polite about it. The first sniffs tell you the most; it’s best to take a few quick sniffs instead of one long sniff.
 

4. Sip. Keep the wine in your mouth to taste it for 3 to 4 seconds, swirl it around all over your tongue. Experts pull air through the wine while it’s in their mouths.
