Applications for the 2015 Festival will open online May 15 and close June 15, 2014. All applications will be reviewed by a knowledgeable Winery Selection Committee. The review process takes place over the summer months. Announcements of successful applications will be made public in the fall.
Each winery that is selected to participate will showcase products at all International Festival Tasting Room sessions. Participating wineries have the additional opportunity to showcase their products in a range of events over the week – including winery dinners, regional lunches, grazing events and seminars, as well as a comprehensive trade program. The 2014 Festival featured 177 wineries from 14 countries participating in 54 events over the course of the week.
