BC Wine Lovers: Stacey Fruin & Mike Klassen

Enterprising people, sustainable agriculture, and dynamic tourism. We love wine culture!

After a few summers of glorious wine travel with a young child in tow, Mike Klassen and Stacey Fruin finally decided in 2007 to start the BC Wine Lover blog in order to share our experiences with friends and colleagues. Canada is a relative new wine region in the world, started after the confluence of free trade and government policy that permitted farmers to sell their products directly to customers on-site. Since the early 1990s, British Columbia has become a region that not only produces excellent wine, it has fostered a community of winemakers, viticulturalists, small business operators, hospitality experts, touring companies, publicists, and industry boosters (like us!).

BC Wine Lover is about sharing our personal stories and experiences and those from our wine friends too. We champion the high standards of our indigenous wine & grape growing industry while raising a glass to their success.

We hope that you will become a BC Wine Lover too!

And if you like what you see here, be sure to “Like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter – @BCWineLover and @MikeKlassen.

Sincerely,

Mike and Stacey
