More good news on the BC Zinfandel front: my story, The Great BC Zinfandel Roundup, has just been published in the Spring 2016 issue of Edible Vancouver and Wine Country.
EVWC is lushly-printed on heavy stock and distributed throughout the lower mainland of BC. The layout looks fantastic.
They used two images I shot: the first page bottle lineup as well as the portrait of Bruce Fuller of Rustico. Check it out here!
This is my first contribution to Edible Vancouver and Wine Country, but it won’t be my last!
And this is not my first BC Zinfandel roundup, oh no.
Being a California gal, I’ve consumed a lot of zinfandel in my time. But when I heard it was being grown in British Columbia, and tried that first 2006 Inniskillin from Bear Cub Vineyard, I decided that BC Zin was something I had to follow. I’m a bit of a zinfanatic, ya know.
In 2013, I blogged about four of the six BC Zins available at the time in BC Zinfandel and Lamb Shanks
Last year, I collected eight of the current ten BC Zins and held a zin tasting in my home, blogging that BC Zinfandels Prove to be More Friendly than Californians.
From that tasting, I wrote a post for Natalie MacLean’s blog, called, 8 Zensational BC Zinfandels to Challenge Californian Wines in which I review each wine in the more depth.
Thanks to global warming BC is becoming more a hospital climate to warm weather grapes such as zinfandel. And as more producers continue to plant zinfandel and make single varietals with it, I’ll be watching, ready to tell the world about them.
Lastly, I want to say goodnight sweet Prince. We don’t yet know why, but clearly you left us much too soon. RIP.
