Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival

Once again, the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival will be in Banff, Alberta this upcoming weekend from May 30 to 31.  Each year, the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel opens its ballroom for the #RMWFF, an event that attracts more wine and food lovers each and every year.


Tickets for the event are still available for the Friday night session, which I will also be attending, as well as Saturday afternoon for $29. If you have yet to visit this wine festival, I definitely recommend making a drive to the beautiful Rocky Mountains this weekend and experiencing the collection of fine food and wine.

The numerous wineries, breweries and restaurants are all sure to impress with their numerous tastings and samples.  Keep an eye out for the following wineries and WineCollective favourites:

  • 19 Crimes, Australia
  • Jacob’s Creek, Australia
  • CedarCrek, Canada
  • Mission Hill, Canada
  • Hester Creek, Canada
  • Chateau Trillol, France
  • Cameron Hughes, Italy and USA
  • J. Ramos Wines, Portugal
  • Saxenburg, South Africa
  • La Crema, USA


Considering this is also a food festival, there will also be amazing dishes to sample from some of Banff’s best restaurants. Balkan The Greek Restaurant will be serving chocolate baklava and The Bison Restaurant will have bison kabobs with kimchi. You will also find Elk & Oarsman, Nourish Bistro and numerous hotel restaurants with treats for everyone.

Watch for the event’s blog post next week and please let us know if you’re visiting Banff this weekend for the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival. It is always great getting to meet our WineCollective members over a glass of our favourite beverage!

See you in Banff!

p.s. While WineCollective is always bragging about our local events here in Calgary, we would still love to hear about the wine festivals and tastings going on around the country. Let us know when you’re visiting a wine event in your city and tell us all about it so we can share with the WC community!
