Here are some of the wines that I liked from the wide selection that were poured. The annual Wines of British Columbia Spring Release Tasting will showcase over 90 BC wineries and 300 premium BC VQA wines, while highlighting the highly anticipated 2013 vintage. Come and mingle with the winemakers as you taste the flavours or their new spring releases.
