2007’s BC Best Wine Book
John Schreiner's Okanagan Wine Tour (2nd Edition) is just one of the author's excellent texts on BC's wine biz, but it scores points for being just the right size for a car glove box. Okanagan Wine Tour answers all the basic questions you might have about your wine destinations, such as who owns it? What is the winery's history? What are the best bets for purchase?
John's bio courtesy of Wine Appellation America reads,
John Schreiner has been covering the wines of British Columbia for the past 30 years and has written 10 books on the wines of Canada and BC. He has judged at major competitions and is currently a panel member for the Lieutenant Governor's Awards of Excellence in Wine. Both as a judge and as a wine critic, he approaches each wine not to find fault, but to find excellence. That he now finds the latter more often than the former testifies to the dramatic improvement shown by BC winemaking in the past decade.
Hear hear, John.
