British Columbia

We like to call this BC Wines section "BC Local Heroes." What makes BC wines unique? As a young, quickly maturing wine region, there are a tremendous variety of grapes cultivated resulting in a diverse range of styles. From the internationally-recognized wines of West Kelowna, to the cliffs of the Naramata Bench towards Oliver’s "Golden Mile," to the rugged mountainous Similkameen Valley and smaller boutique wineries on Vancouver Island, this Province has a wine for almost anyone. You may find these wines in most restaurants in Vancouver, and they enjoy high popularity amongst British Columbians and international wine enthusiasts.
