Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival 2015

Every year, I jot down the dates for the Edmonton’s annual Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival and somehow every year something always comes up. Work. Another event. Whatever. I’m happy to say though that this year is the year! With a new year’s resolution (ha!) to try more wines which I finally started last month, I am very excited to be attending this year’s event, more so for the wine than for the food. I’m excited! Coincidentally, Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival has also given me a pair of tickets to giveaway on the blog! Read on for more details or head straight to the end of the post to enter.

The Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival is the largest wine and food event in Alberta, offering a sampling of a variety of wine, scotch, import beer, and premium spirits to go alongside gourmet food samples from Edmonton’s local restaurants and hotels. This year, the Grand Tasting Hall at Shaw Conference Centre will be hosted on Friday, November 6 from 5pm to 10pm, and Saturday, November 7 from noon to 4pm or 6pm-10pm. Tickets can be bought online or at the door, which brings you into the event where you can buy sampling coupons for $0.50. Samples range from 1 to 20 or more coupons, depending on the item and are set by the exhibitors.

I’m excited to sample some fantastic wines since buying by the bottle at home can only go so far! I’m a big fan of variety! I’m all set with the free Festival mobile app as well and ready to take some notes. You can even “favourite” a wine or food item on the app to remember all your favourites of the night and an exhibition map will keep you on track to not miss any booths! Did I already say I was excited? There’s sure a lot of wines to go through… it’s going to a be a big recap blog post! See you there and happy drinking!

In general I prefer red, but a nice rosé on a summer afternoon is pretty fantastic.

Love a nice white, mostly Pinot Gris these days, but the flavor from reds when cooking is pretty amazing.

Team Red!

Though, lately I’ve been really into sweet reds. “Jam Jar” is my current favourite – a sweet shiraz.

I LOVE red! But depending on who’s around I might have to switch to white to save my smile!

I enjoy all wine equally! Winter lends itself to warm, hearty reds, Summer lends itself to light, crisp white, and Rose is good anytime! If I have to choose, my heart belongs to Prosecco 😉

Team white all the way. Red wine and I just aren’t good friends. Fav white to drink depends on a lot of factors but go to’s are New Zealand Sauv’s and Italian Pinot Grigio’s.
For white wines I also enjoy a creative blend and am open to trying interesting ones by the glass when out or if reasonably priced picking one up for a Friday night tasting session.
Cheers!

We prefer whites in summer and reds in winter. Unless it’s sangria, then always red.
