Top 10 : Early BC Spring Releases

Back on the road in BC Wine Country

We have been travelling BC wine routes for a month now, looking for anything that would suggest we are getting back to normal.

Understaffed wineries will likely welcome a cool spring as they get just a little extra time to prepare for what we hope will be a full on post-pandemic season. One thing we should all be looking forward to is the 2020 red wines that will be released. It is a vintage considered by this writer to be one of the best since the inception of VQA, and with 2021 shortages looming, it is one you should pounce on if you a looking to stock up your cellar. In the meantime, here is a top ten of some of the most current releases we have tasted, both red and white.
