Before a single grape is squeezed, years of careful planning go into a wine, starting with a vineyard.

Every decision in winegrowing, or viticulture, has an impact on the final quality in the bottle.

As British Columbia’s vineyards spring to life, share in celebrating the incredible dedication and passion of British Columbia’s winemakers and grapegrowers and the important ways they are contributing to the land, preserving the beauty and health of our environment for future generations.

Did you know that wildflowers can be an important part of vineyard farming practices? They can form part of a cover crop, that helps protect soil in the vineyards from erosion and help maintain moisture levels, while also attracting bees and other beneficial insects, contributing to biodiversity and sustainability in a vineyard.

Many BC’s winegrowers are also producing highly sought after organic wine and natural wines.
