The BC Liquor Stores have some recommendations for you to buy California wines during the Vancouver International Wine Festival, which kicks off on Feb. 25, 2019. Here is their press release. Enjoy.
What makes California wines so exciting right now? California has been blessed with fantastic vintages for the past seven consecutive years from 2012 to 2018. The majority of California wines featured at this year’s festival will be from the 2015 and 2016 vintages.
