British Columbia is gaining recognition for its world-class premium VQA wines which are fermented, aged, and bottled under strict industry regulations.
NOTE: always look for BC wines that are made from local grapes, and beware of bottles that contain the wording "Cellared in Canada". These use foreign bulk wine to produce a wine that is definitely not the genuine article!
Even if you aren't a wine lover, a tour of BC wine country can be merely as an excuse to do some lovely sightseeing with visits to any number of the region's more than 200 wineries.
