Cheers to Dreaming Big, California Style

by Press Release
May 13, 2019

Wines from California took centre stage at the 2019 festival to help celebrate our 41st year of pairing wine with the performing arts."The soft, round ripe wines of the Golden State certainly have wide public appeal in British Columbia," writes Vancouver Sun columnist Anthony Gismondi. "Couple that with some big names behind the booths and it was a sellout week across the board for the Americans." Read more of Gismondi's festival highlights: Goodbye California, it's been grand.

"From raising funds for the Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival to pouring wine into upward of 82,000 glasses..." click here for a quick recap of what went down throughout the week (courtesy of BC Living).

Thank you to everyone who made 2019 another outstanding festival. Special thanks to everyone involved with the Bacchanalia Gala Dinner +Auction, presented by Blakes, which raised $233,500 for Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival! Tickets to Bard's 30th season are now on sale.
