Vancouver International Wine Festival 2018

About the festival

The Vancouver International Wine Festival, Canada’s premier food & wine event, has three mandates: to provide an informative, educational and entertaining wine experience for public and trade; to be a premier marketing opportunity for the wine industry and festival partners; and to raise funds for the Bard on the Beach Theatre Society. The 2018 festival runs February 24 to March 4.

VanWineFest is Canada’s premier wine show and widely considered to be the best wine event in North America. With ~25,000 admissions and at 40 years of age, it is one of the biggest and oldest wine events in the world. Its slogan is “The Wine World is Here”. It has been voted the “#1 Food, Wine & Hospitality Event in Canada” the last five years in a row by New York’s BizBash. The Trade Days Conference, which runs February 28 to March 2, comprises 12 of the festival’s 51 events.

The heart of the festival is the Tasting Room, where the public can choose from 763 wines at four International Festival Tastings, and industry professionals can sample those plus an additional 155 wines at two Trade Tastings. There are 45 special events that orbit the tasting room (seminars, vintage tastings, winery dinners, lunches, brunches, wine minglers and more) at which 542 other wines are served.

The 2018 festival features wines from 16 countries. There is a focus on a different region or country every year; the featured region has its own section in the tasting room and offers thematic seminars and food and wine pairings throughout the week. In 2018, the festival is celebrating wines from Iberian Peninsula neighbours, Spain (with 38 wineries) and Portugal (with 20 wineries).

Daryl Pope

Executive Chef

Daryl Pope is Executive Chef and Owner of Artisan Bistro, an upscale French Bistro located in Broadmead, Victoria B.C.   Chef Pope discovered his passion for cooking in his teens and graduated from Camosun College with his Red Seal.  He apprenticed at the  then very exclusive Aerie Resort under Executive Chef Christophe Letard when Conde Nas Magazine rated the establishment as Best Resort in North America two years in a row.
Cooking competitions featured early in Chef Pope’s career and he won first place in the Grand Marnier Dessert Challenge.  In 2011, he placed third of twelve chefs who competed in the Chef of the Year Cooking Competition. Daryl continued to develop his culinary skills cooking at several Victoria restaurants.  He was working with Executive Chef, Richard Luttman, at the Old English Inn Resort when it was awarded second Place as Best New Restaurant in Canada.   Subsequently, Chef Pope accepted the position of Corporate Chef at SYSCO, Victoria. His then focus was in providing consulting services to many restaurants throughout Vancouver Island, assisting them to grow and develop their business by introducing creative and unique dishes to their menu.

Later, Chef Pope was contracted by the Royal Canadian Navy to set up the kitchens and develop menus for the Service’s ten Orca Class Vessels.
Returning to traditional restaurant cooking, Chef Pope was called to work in Edmonton and accepted the position of Restaurant Chef at the Westin Hotel.  However, returning to Vancouver Island, at some time in the future, was always high in Daryl’s priorities. This was satisfied when later he was appointed as Restaurant Chef for one of the last Four Star Restaurants operating in Victoria, at the Hotel Grand Pacific. 
Chef Pope had always anticipated that he would own and operate his own establishment one day.  With his partners, he opened Artisan Bistro two years ago and it is proving to be a great success and is the only restaurant in the area offering fine dining and a complementary wine list as well as a selection of other menu offerings at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Throughout his career, Chef Pope has cooked for several Chaine dinner events in BC and Alberta.
