In the Delta One cabin (International Business Class), every detail is thoughtfully considered from start to finish. Arriving ready is just one of the perks of 180-degree flat-bed seats, Westin Heavenly In-flight bedding and TUMI amenity kits featuring refreshing MALIN & GOETZ products. Delta One service also offers regionally tailored chef-curated meals paired with wines selected by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson. And power outlets at every seat keep devices powered throughout the trip.

A Delta One journey begins before ever stepping on board an aircraft with complimentary access to more than 200 Delta Sky Club partner lounges worldwide. From booking to baggage claim, passengers enjoy an accelerated and streamlined trip with shorter lines, early boarding and priority baggage service.

The Bacchanalia Gala Dinner + Auction on February 23, 2019 is the centrepiece of the Vancouver International Wine Festival and one of the most spectacular events in the city – an evening of incredible wine, inventive food pairings, and unparalleled opportunities to enhance your wine cellar.

It will kick off with a sparkling wine reception at 6pm and features nine additional outstanding wines paired with an exquisite five-course menu prepared by the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver’s culinary team.  All of this will be topped off with live music and dancing.

And if that’s not enough, live and silent auctions throughout the evening will feature extremely rare wines, epicurean getaways and unique culinary experiences featuring chefs and sommeliers from the West Coast’s top restaurants.
