BC is a province rich in spectacular views, extraordinary flavours and memorable stories.

In July 2018, the Province of British Columbia announced four regions have been approved as Geographical Indications, meaning soon you will see confirmation on labels that your certified BC wine is from one of these regions: Thompson Valley, Shuswap, Lillooet, Kootenays.

Like the landscape, each bottle of BC wine delivers a diverse sensory experience that is as extraordinary as the province itself. Every sip is a genuine reflection of the people that created it and the land from which it is crafted.

BC’s thriving wine industry attracts talented winemakers from around the world. Each of these trained professionals has brought his or her knowledge, passion and fresh ideas to our wine communities helping to shape an identity and style unique to British Columbia.

In 2017, BC wineries won more than 2,000 medals in national and international competition. With each new accolade, our wine regions continue to expand their reputation for quality and solidify their place amongst the best in the world.
