Wine Growers British Columbia (WGBC) is pleased to invite our BC grapegrowers, viticulturists, and winemakers to attend the 17th annual Winemakers and Viticulturists’ Forum which will take place virtually on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 at 10:00 AM (PST).

This year, Moderator Rhys Pender, MW, will facilitate a lively and engaging discussion on the 2023 vintage, with interactive polls (and live results) as well as an anonymous Q&A discussion board. Participating in this forum allows you access to a sounding board of your peers to discuss the challenges and victories of this most recent growing season.


BC Vintage 2023 Survey – NOW CLOSED
Deadline: November 29, 2023

The results of the survey allow WGBC to offer a well-facilitated discussion at the Forum for you to participate in and learn from. The aggregate data collected maybe used for future government support and results also contribute to the publication of the BC Wine Grape Vintage Report for 2023 – a tool used to educate and assist media, trade, and other stakeholders in the promotion of BC wine. If you would still like to submit your growing season data please email Kelly Josephson at

Participation in The Winemakers & Viticulturists Forum event and Vintage Survey is exclusive to BC winemakers, viticulturists and grapegrowers. Please note that the event will not be streamed live or recorded for distribution. Individual survey responses will be kept confidential.
