British Columbia Wine Roundup - Fall 2020

19 Dec 2020

 

I like to wait till I get enough British Columbia wines so I can release them as their own “report” – here I have 46 BC wines from 29 wineries that really are worth picking up (many I tasted during my judging at the All Canadian WIne Championships back in July.  Also included is a lone Nova Scotia wine, I really had nowhere else to put it so here it sits ... here's hoping I get to taste more wines from that province, then they'll get their ow report.  Enjoy.
