Buy Local Wines – August 2017
Buy local this August

August is "Buy Local" month and BC Liquor Stores are proud to showcase all things BC, including our delicious BC VQA (Vintners Quality Alliance) wines!

BC VQA certified wines must meet certain origin and quality requirements. These wines are made with 100 percent BC grown grapes and come from wineries in the Okanagan Valley, Fraser Valley, Similkameen Valley, Gulf Islands, Vancouver Island or other emerging regions in BC.

Keep it local this month when you pick up a BC VQA wine from BC Liquor Stores!
