Raise a glass to the success of the west coast wine industry for BC Wine Month

Like the land where the grapes are grown, each bottle of British Columbia wine serves an extraordinary and unique experience. In recognition of April being BC Wine Month, it is important to note that  most of the grapes for Canada's wineries are grown in the southern parts of British Columbia and Ontario, where sun-drenched summers give way to warm, lingering autumns.

Like the cool-climate wine districts of New Zealand, Germany, and parts of France, these Canadian regions enjoy an ideal climate for the slow maturing of the grapes, a leisurely ripening that ensures just the right balance of acidity and sweetness in the finished wines.

The beautiful lands of British Columbia are home to over 900 vineyards and over 300 licensed wineries. Decades of producing quality local wines has served to greatly make an impact on the province's economy for the better.

Here are some more interesting facts about the British Columbia wine industry.

So, honour BC Wine Month and foster the growth of this flourishing sector of the Canadian economy by shopping locally for your favourite British Columbia produced wine.
