First imagine the setting... a beautifully refurbished turn of the century railway building filled with skylights, atriums, archways, balconies and a lovely courtyard filled with tropical plants that reach to the sky. Specialty shops, boutiques, artisans with their wares, and ethnic food kiosks are all nestled within the natural brick walls and archways of the two-story historic building. This is The Forks Market, setting for the 23rd Annual International Wine Festival of Manitoba on October 17, 18, and 19, 2014.
The stage is set for an event that fills the senses and captures the mood and romance of days gone by. Take a stroll through The Market Courtyard and sample some of the hundreds of wines on display during the 3-day Wine Festival. Over 100 wineries are represented this year with experts on hand, ready to offer suggestions and help you discover previously unknown treasures from around the world.
