Wine Culture Magazine

Welcome to the Spring/Summer 2019 issue of Vitis, the magazine of British Columbia’s wine culture.

The warm, sunny days of summer are beckoning us to wine country, our favourite place to be. And in this issue of Vitis, we have loads of great ideas for exciting places to go, whether near or far, and delicious things to taste once you’re there.

For instance, writer Daenna Van Mulligen indulges in pretzels and Riesling in fairytale Alsace. Closer to home, we explore the Fraser Valley’s growing wine scene, while Barb Wild advises on wines to bring to the great outdoors, Cinda Chavich suggests cheeses for your picnic basket and Laura Starr explains what “garagiste” wines are and why you should care.

On the serious side, we look at how wildfires are affecting wine country, while Tim Pawsey demystifies what’s going on with B.C.’s new sub-appellations.

And there’s big news for Vitis—we’re growing! Meet Michael Di Caro, the editor of our brand-new Ontario edition, and check out his story on Ontario’s orange revolution.

Pick up a copy at any of these locations, or subscribe here, and have a copy delivered to your mailbox.

Raise a glass to summer—meet you all in wine country!
