About Us

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

Stacey and MikeAfter several 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. British Columbia is a 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, BC has become a region that not only produces excellent wine, it has fostered a community of winemakers, viticulturalists, small business operators, service suppliers, tour companies, publicists and industry boosters (like us!).

BC Wine Lover is about sharing stories and experiences, promoting the high standards of our 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.
