Vino Italiano - That's the theme for this year's Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival. It's a week long party filled with opulent dinners, parties and gala auctions and a tasting room that would make Bacchus himself blush. It all got started last Monday night at Earls' Paramount location in downtown where West Van's own Earl himself (Buzz Fuller) welcomed guests and VIPs.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
