Though wine brands have long produced branded and promotional merchandise—think of Veuve Clicquot splashing its signature golden colour on everything from Champagne coolers to tennis balls—“nobody really needs another corkscrew or bottle stopper,” laughs Sarah Bancroft. She cites French beauty brand Caudalie, which uses grape and vine products among its all-natural ingredients, as one global wellness brand inspired by wine terroir.

Here are just a few locally inspired ideas:

• For a splash of Canadian-wine-inspired style in your closet and décor, the Saintly Collective (which makes both B.C. and Ontario wines) takes inspiration from its rosé to collaborate with makers. A capsule collection of upcycled clothing is the result, plus cute rosé-coloured sweats, bucket hats—even a rug that looks like a river of rosé.

• You can also bring the taste of wine country home with meal kits, like the ones Phantom Creek Estates created this past Valentine’s Day: luxe take-home meal-kit boxes containing local delicacies like 63 Acres beef. Wine-country-inspired Naramata Inn also sells foodie items like its ultra-local preserves and famous granola in-season.,

• The most iconic B.C. wine swag to take home might just be the annual Winery Dogs of BC Calendar that is perennially on display and sold in many a tasting room, with partial proceeds going to the BCSPCA.
