About Top Drop

“The Most Awesome Wine Event of the Year” – Vancouver Magazine

Embarking on its fourth year, Top Drop Vancouver is a two day trade and consumer event being held at the Roundhouse in Yaletown and various Vancouver restaurants in May, bringing together a collection of small, hands on wineries, craft breweries, cideries and food purveyors who are passionate about their craft.

Our focus is terroir-influenced, handcrafted wines, and the people behind them. We believe in the importance in farming one’s own fruit and/or being constantly engaged with grape-growers to ensure sustainability and a high standard of viticultural practices. We believe in wines that reflect their vintage, and wines that aren’t suffocated by vinicultural trickery. We believe in winemaking decisions that are made by a winemaker, and not by a board of directors or marketing team. We believe in those who take chances. We believe these kinds of wines, honest wines of integrity, need a time and place to have their story told.

We also believe craft beer, cider, along with authentic and sustainable produce, dairy, meat and seafood are part of the same conversation, which is why we’re proud to showcase some of our best in those areas.

This is why we created Top Drop Vancouver,
proudly supporting the B.C. Hospitality Foundation.
