New to snooth; casual drinker of wines for some ten years; trying to learn more and try more.

I'm from Vancouver, BC so British Columbia wines are very easy to find so my small collection has a lot of wines from the Mission Hill family including their 2006 Occulus which I'm excited to try in a few years.

Cheers.

Welcome Sacrifice!
I'm very jealous. Not only do you live in beautiful BC, but you get to drink their wines... which are really hard to find in the US!

Hey Sacrifice, I'm really looking forward to seeing your reviews. As I've heard a great deal about BC wines but we don't get many of your wines here in Australia. Welcome and please share lots.

Come on John, there isn't enough Oak in Okanagan's wines to merit using those slurs like that...

Canadian! Rock on. I am on the east coast. Yes I love living here..but man...our liquor corporation aka government run facilities, don't seem to be on the wine band wagon. Perhaps its the duty when crossing over the great border :) Who knows. I feel like I am behind the iron curtain :)

The Okanagan is fantastic and really coming along. Still probably second place to Niagara as far as Canada's premier wine production region, but a solid second place I'd say.

Fortunately our British Columbia Liquor Commission is solidly on board with wine, though the border does apply slight duties to those liquids. :(

Welcome! I used to live in SK, where nobody cared to drink wine @ bush parties,, Fortunately I was able to travel all over Canada, from Montreal to Churchill, and of course my favorite Vancouver!! I was just a teenager back then so didn't have any knowledge in wine, unfortunately,, I still visited Inniskillin thgouh! I look forward to your tasting notes so that I know which one to try next time I'm up there!!

@sacrifice333 ... have you tried Laughing Stock or Burrowing Owl? A friend of mine in Toronto swears by them.

I'm pretty sure I've enjoyed Burrowing Owl before, but I don't think I've come across Laughing Stock yet. I'll keep my eyes open for them.
