Tacos and tofino wine fest

I had such a good time at the Tofino food and wine festival this weekend. 😉 This was my second time attending this event. I just love Tofino, I think it’s such a great little town full of young travellers, surfers and families. The weather was perfect, as Tofino tends to get more fog then any other place I know. If you haven’t been to the food and wine festival yet I highly recommend it. I’s set in the beautiful botanical gardens and you basically spend 3 hours grazing and sipping on Vancouver Island’s best food and wine. There were quite a few different wine reps and brew masters this year with their best wines and beers for sampling. There were also many local restaurants and bakeries offering delicious little nibbles as you toured through the garden.

Oysters tofino wine fest

[/one_half] One of my boyfriends favourite samples was the super fresh oysters! How cute are the wood wine trays to hold our food and glasses?! What a great idea. 😉 Another great snack was the fresh shrimp tacos! The line up was long but totally worth it. This photo below of ahi tuna on wonton crackers was defiantly my favourite. All the seafood was super fresh including the little salmon pita’s pictured below. Needless to say we didn’t leave hungry!

Cider tofino food and wine fest

[/one_half] As for the wine, I quite enjoyed sampling most of the wines and a few tasty ciders. The BC Tree Fruits Cider pictured below was delicious. I also liked the wine from Lone Tree Cellars and I was in heaven with the honey wine from Meadow Vista. If you haven’t been to Tofino’s Grazing in the gardens yet, I think its worth the trip next summer. The roads are long and winding but the beautiful beaches, friendly people and this awesome event make it worth the trek! 😉
