CANADA ENTERS THE WINE ERA
The world most beautiful and unusual vineyards
An episode from the series ON THE WINE ROAD
One would not expect to find vines under certain latitudes. Take for example British Columbia with its sumptuous landscapes made of islands, vast wilderness and crystalline lakes. There, some localities benefit from microclimates favorable to the development of wine.
The production is recent and concentrated on a few regions such as Vancouver Island which is getting known for the quality of its wines or the Okanagan Valley, a majestic site where vines cling to steep slopes that surround the lakes and give the famous Ice Wine.
