HERE’S HOW THE CHAT WENT:
It’s a great chat to find out more about the wines and wineries of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. From Nanaimo to the Cowichan Valley, from the Saanich Peninsula to Salt Spring Island, the wineries of the Wine Islands Vintners’s Association are uniquely BC.
What varieties grow best? Which varieties are best purchased from the interior of BC? How does the ocean influence the characteristics of these wines? What can you expect when wine touring this quaint and spectacular region? The BC wine industry is more than what you find in the Okanagan Valley–it’s time to explore the westernmost part of our province and their style of winemaking.
