Top 10 : BC Summer Sensations

By: Anthony Gismondi
The BC wines that stood out for us this summer

It hasn’t been an easy summer for Okanagan wine producers.

After more than a year or more of coronavirus challenges, they have had a summer of wildfire outbreaks in and around wine country and a fair number of less than gracious visitors who want to be treated as if there is nothing more important than their visit. In our estimation, they have been coping well and rolling with the punches with extraordinary grace. Still, everybody is tired, and the harvest (eight to twelve weeks more of hard work) is already underway for some picking for sparkling wine. The best thing you can do is be mindful of all that and buy some wine online to keep the wheels turning. This week we offer up a top ten from the GOW team that reflects some of our best summer moments tasting BC wine.
