I’ve just been doing a bit of research for a couple of classes that I will be teaching shortly. According to the Liquor Control & Licensing Branch there are currently 250 wineries in the province. This number does include meaderies, cideries and fruit wineries as well as grape wineries. Purely in the areas that I toured last year, the number of wineries has increased by 17! I look forward to visiting these new ventures this upcoming season as well as perhaps traveling to some of BC’s other winegrowing regions. Best of luck to all the wineries in 2013 – may it be another stellar vintage!
