Media Releases
VanWineFest typically issues 10 or more news releases over the course of the festival. Releases are emailed in text-only format to journalists in our database and they are simultaneously published online. We do not mail or fax releases.

Email Updates
In addition to press releases, we send informal email updates to local media. These updates keep media informed on sell-outs and other developments at the festival. The informal email updates are not posted online; you must be in our database to receive them. We generally do not send the informal updates to out-of-province or international media, unless otherwise requested. Sell-outs are posted online at Search All Events.

Media Database Additions
To be added to the VanWineFest media database, please send an email (info below) with ADD in the subject line. In the body of the email, you must include your name, media organization and its web address (or, if freelance, a short list of media where your stories have appeared) and your role. Please also include your preferred postal address, your email address and daytime phone number. Sorry, but we cannot add non-media to this database. Please note that being in the database does not automatically accredit you to attend the festival; you must apply separately for media accreditation. Media accreditation notice will go out 6 weeks prior to Festival.

"From screwcaps and labels, to bottle weights, POS and marketing materials, and much more, the festival remains a treasure trove of information for the wide-eyed and inquisitive." - Anthony Gismondi
