We are so excited to announce Victoria's first Natural Wine Festival!
In working with a select group of BC wineries and international import agencies, Barnyard Natural Wine Festival will bring together the largest collection of natural and low-intervention wines that Vancouver Island, and perhaps even Western Canada, has ever seen at a single event.
If you're already here, you likely have some understanding of what natural wine is, and you also likely know what a unique opportunity it is to taste from multiple producers in one evening! If you're new to natural wine, or wine in general, please check out our FAQ section to understand a bit about how we define Natural Wine and why it's important to us.
The overall philosophy of this event is to introduce our guests to wines that, for the most part, we don't have many opportunities to taste on Vancouver Island. As we all become more and more conscious of our individual impacts on the world around us, we often look for ways to consume responsibly - whether that's buying produce from a farmer's market, choosing to shop with Made In Canada producers, or hopping on an electric bike rather than taking the car. We have the same choices when it comes to wine, not just in buying local (which we love), but also in buying responsibly and understanding what goes into the products we consume.
