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 the "Golden Mile" along Naramata Bench in Kelowna, to smaller boutique wineries on Vancouver Island, this Province has a wine for almost anyone. You may find these wines in the most chic restaurants in Vancouver, and they enjoy high popularity amongst British Columbians.
