Galiano Wine and Beer Tasting Festival.  Informal and joyful, the wine and beer festival is an open-air event that is a wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon.  And at $45 a ticket, it is great value.  The price of entrance includes unlimited tasting, a crested Riedel crystal wine glass and a beer glass (yes, two glasses included this year), fresh-made finger food, and entertainment.  They also have Galiano artists exhibiting and selling their original work.  There’s room to move around, no long waits for the wines and beers/ales you want to taste, plenty of time to talk with the wine merchants, wine makers and beer makers as well as hanging out with your old and new friends.
