Best Wine: <span class="caps">BC</span>

Wines from BC are not available in every market and sometimes are hard to come by. The majority of wines that are exported to other countries are Ice Wines. A few BC wineries that produce Ice Wines are: Mission Hill Family Estates, Jackson Triggs Okanagan Winery, Nk’Mip Winery, See Ya Later Ranch, Hester Creek, Gehringer Brothers, Hainle Vineyards, Pentâge Winery, and Summerhill.BC also has amazing red and white wines that could definitely compete with some of the best wines in the world. I feel that BC does very well with Syrah, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, and Viognier.

Below are some specific red and white wines I would recommend:

Quails’ Gate - Pinot Noir Dijon Clone Selection
Meyer Family Vineyards - Pinot Noir
