If there’s one thing that British Columbia knows, it’s good wine.

That was clearly evident at the recent All Canadian Wine Championships, which critique wines from all across the nation.

B.C. wines cleaned up at the awards, taking home 341 of a possible 492 awards, including four of the five major trophies.

It was quite the year for Wild Goose Vineyards in Okanagan Falls, taking home two of those major trophies.
