The 2012 Calgary Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival was a great success. On October 12th and 13th, 2012 wine and food lovers were invited to indulge at the 15th annual Calgary Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival. The Festival featured a wide array of world-class wine, premium spirits, import and micro-brewed beer, and an assortment of local culinary creations in a fun, social, and relaxed atmosphere.
The Stampede Park BMO Centre hosted Calgary's 2012 Grand Tasting Hall, where over 200 exhibitor booths showcased the latest adult beverage products, including a distinguished collection of wines from around the globe, premium spirits, single malt and blended scotches, port, specialty liqueurs, and import and micro-brewed beer. Guests paired beverages with a delicious selection of nibbles from local restaurants, hotel and food purveyors. Offering something for everyone, products ranged from value based to ultra-exclusive. The Grand Tasting Hall offered a unique opportunity to explore new products, interact with the experts and discover new finds. With an onsite Liquor Depot store, attendees were able to pick up new, exciting products and old favourites on the spot!
