British Columbia

Located four hours east from the city of Vancouver and north of the 49° latitude, British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley and Similkameen Valley, where most of British Columbia’s grapes are grown, have a unique combination of extreme heat and cold that result in intense fruit-driven, fresh and structured wines. The wines of British Columbia depend on the heat from the sun to create intense flavors, and the cool nights to preserve the natural acidity that allow the wines to remain fresh and lively.
