Top Drop: Terroir-focused wine fest returns to Vancouver this month
Top Drop, a popular terroir-focused wine festival, is officially returning to Vancouver this month.
On Tuesday, May 23 and Wednesday, May 24, the unique festival will be taking place at Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre in Vancouver, celebrating dozens of international, terroir-focused wineries and the people behind them.
The continued focus of this event is to feature “sustainably-farmed, handcrafted wines offering a distinct sense of place, without heavy-handed winemaking trickery to get in the way.”
Both wine enthusiasts and professionals that attend will be able to walk around and take part in casual soirée-styled tastings from the principals of dozens of international wineries. Access to exclusive pours, new releases, and exciting new finds is the draw for the many that attend each year.
