For connoisseurs and casual consumers alike, the Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival
offers a fantastic opportunity to sample some of the finest wine, scotch, spirits, beer and cuisine in the province. Hosted at the Fairmont Springs in picturesque Banff , Alberta (just 20 minutes from our Canmore EconoLodge), the event takes place over the weekend of May 10th and features a wide variety of locally and internationally produced wines to be sampled alongside delectable cuisine provided by Banff's top restaurants.
In addition to the featured wines, you can delight your palate with a selection of single malt and blended scotches, boutique liqueurs and craft brewed ales and lagers. It's all on display in the festival's Grand Tasting Hall, where guests can explore the latest trends in upscale food and drink while mingling with experts to learn about the process of producing high quality wine and spirits.
For some added excitement, you can cast your vote in the Grand Sample Search which recognizes the top cuisine samples at the festival. All the culinary delights at the fest are sourced from local restaurants, so be sure to support your pick and help our world-class Alberta businesses thrive.
