BC Vintners Have Grape Expectations

By Vine Living on September 19, 2008 - 11:51am

British Columbia vintners are taking more and more chances with varieties typically grown in far hotter climates.

Where obscure varieties like Chancellor and Okanagan Riesling once reigned because they were considered winter hardy, you’ll now find Syrah, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Barbera.

But they aren’t stopping there. Growers are pushing the boundaries even further with late-ripening grapes no one would ever expect to be rooted in B.C. soil. If they are a success, they promise a whole new era in British Columbia wine.
