We have always kept a close watch on the BC Wine industry at GOW.
With the current global shutdown, and April marking the annual BC Wine Month, we thought there was no better time to shine the light on our local producers, farmers, vintners, and eno-heroes. Buying local has always been important, but now it is even more so, especially for small producers. Numerous BC wineries, retailers, and restaurants are creatively working to make it easy to get BC wine to you safely. We've seen the swell of free shipping, virtual tastings, local touchless delivery, and curbside pickups happening across the province. WineBC has put together this regional list of wineries and how to buy direct. It is continually updated, so check back often. Don't forget to visit your local independent wine shop for BC wines; many of them are offering delivery or shipping.
BC is leading the country in flattening the curve, which leads us to believe we may soon be all in a position to visit outside our communities, and with our many international friends. After all, we are all in this together. For now, we strive to help build a healthy, stable, and prosperous industry at home.
Our April Top Tens will all be BC-based. Today we start recently tasted white wine highlights.
