“It’s a playlist for your wine cravings! With personalized suggestions, weekly top wines, ratings, promotions and more, it’s an interactive space for everything BC wine. So happy to see the BC Wines Explorer App check all the boxes when it comes to supporting the local industry and making wine approachable for the community. It’s a one-stop shop and gives me everything I need to know about the wine and even what cheeses and food to pair it with. I highly recommend downloading this easy-to-use, practical and convenient app made for beginners all the way to experts.”
– Mijune Pak, Iron Chef and Top Chef Canada Judge
“The Wines of BC Explorer app is a game-changing way to experience BC wine country, whether virtually or in person. An indispensable guide to all things local and delicious, it’s offers a comprehensive and intuitive deep dive into wineries and wines, with up-to-date technical data for us geeks, plus plenty of fodder for building an itinerary of exploring our regions. It’s fun and easy to build your own virtual cellar (for me it’s a wish list), and it tells you everything you need to know, from Albariño to Zinfandel.
It’s a must have for anyone swirling, sniffing and sipping.”
