Sniff, Swirl and Sip B.C. Wine
For many visitors it comes as a shock to discover that Canada has several internationally award-winning wine regions. Just a few hours drive beyond Vancouver is the Okanagan wine region, which excels in Rieslings and Chardonnays on the whites and Pinot Noir Syrah and Cabernet Francs for the reds. The industry is still relatively young, and doesn’t export much, so your only chance to taste delicious BC wines could be when you visit. Most bars and restaurants have BC wines on their lists and many, such as Forage or Tap and Barrel have a wide selection available by the glass.
