With winter fast approaching, festival season in Ottawa comes to a close. But the good news is, there are still a few sporadic events to look forward to. On the weekend of November 2nd-4th, the annual Ottawa Wine & Food Festival is celebrating it’s, soon-to-be, 33rd year of success. Based on previous years, you can bet that this event is going to, once again, be a major hit with wine connoisseurs, foodies, local socialites, sophisticated drinkers, non-sophisticated drinkers, and folks that simply want to have a good time.
This year, like last year, will be a cash-only event, held at Ottawa’s largest event space, the EY centre. We can safely assume that it’s going to be a classy, and chic event, overflowing with people dressed to the nines. With food, wine, beer, and spirit vendors from all over the globe, offering a huge variety of samples to choose from, there’s no way you can leave this event with dissatisfied tastebuds. Legend has it, that there is a room known as “The Cheese Vault” which, in many ways, speaks for itself, and could even be considered a sole attraction for cheese-lovers.
Although tickets for this highly anticipated event are not yet for sale, you can subscribe using your name and email address on their website (www.wineandfoodfestival.com), to be the first to hear about early bird ticket opportunities, festival news, privileged pricing, recipes, and more. After sampling dozens of wines, beers, and spirits, you will surely have found a couple favourites that you’d like to take home with you. Or you might be inspired to continue the party elsewhere. Thankfully, you don’t have to call it a night. You can have your new favourites delivered right to your door, using Ottawa’s alcohol delivery service.
